M. Charles Pathe

accompanied by Madame Pathé, recently welcomed the staff of his theatres and works at the Cirque d'Hiver, which he recently converted into a picture house. An interesting feature of a long programme was the presentation of a film in which one of the artistes performing at the Pathé theatre was seen receiving a telephone message and leaving his house hurriedly for the theatre. Colliding with numerous passers-by a chase is set up and the artist is seen entering the theatre in rags. At this stage the artist himself appeared on the stage and took up the tale of adventures, the novelty being a great hit. (Kinematograph and Lantern weekly, 23.7.1908)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anmerkung: In der CHRONIQUE DU CINEMA von Jacques Legrand (1992) heißt es: "Paris, 4 July. At the Fourth of July party held for Pathé's personnel at the Winter Circus, Max Linder caused a sensation - first on screen and then by leaping in person onto the stage." Obwohl einige Theater in Paris, wie das Bal Tabarin oder der Jardin de Paris den amerikanischen Unabhängigkeitstag feierten, war hier das Datum lt. Variety (18. Juli): “eher ein Zufall, als zu Ehren des Ruhmreichen Vierten.” - Notes: In CHRONIQUE DU CINEMA by Jacques Legrand (1992) it reads : "Paris, 4 July. At the Fourth of July party held for Pathé's personnel at the Winter Circus, Max Linder caused a sensation - first on screen and then by leaping in person onto the stage." Although some theatres in Paris, like the Bal Tabarin or the Jardin de Paris were celebrating the American Independence Day, here the date was, according to Variety (July, 18): “more of a coincidence than in honor of the Glorious Fourth.”
