Camille (1926 film)

"Camille" (1926) is a silent film based on the 1852 novel and play "La Dame aux Camélias" by Alexandre Dumas, fils. The film was adapted by Fred De Gresac, George Marion Jr., Olga Printzlau and Chandler Sprague, directed by Fred Niblo, and starred Norma Talmadge, Gilbert Roland, and Lilyan Tashman. It was produced by the Norma Talmadge Film Corporation and released by First National Pictures.

There are no known copies of this film extant — or at least in circulation — so it is thought to be a lost film. However, the Douris Corporation reportedly has three double reels of 35 mm nitrate film, which may be the complete film. Clips are available from Archive Films. It has never been released to video or television. (Source: IMDB)

Also in 1926, a 33-minute "home movie" version of "Camille" was filmed, featuring Charlie Chaplin, Paul Robeson, Aileen Pringle, and writers Anita Loos, Sinclair Lewis, and Somerset Maugham. It was released on the Warner Home Video DVD of Chaplin's "A Woman of Paris" and "A King in New York" as a special feature.
