Ivan Mosjoukine and Nathalie Lissenko’s romance in The Burning Crucible is best described as… energetic. There is something really wonderful about the wacky chase that they engage in. This time around, he has located a briefcase that she stole and she needs it back and so… Oh forget it. Just enjoy. The scene culminates with them both leaping on chairs and he stands on his head at one point. Did I mention how much I love this movie?

Availability: Available on DVD as part of the French Masterworks: Russian Emigres in Paris 1923-1928 box set. I cannot emphasize enough how wonderful this box is and how highly I recommend it.
