Since the last update the following changes and additions have been made:


25 August 2017

• Another indication, that Max dans les airs was indeed a re-release film, has turned up.

• An article Max Linders Werdegang [=Max Linder's career], published in a Viennese newspaper on occasion of the filming of "Max, der Zirkuskönig", has come to light. Again, Max recounts his beginnings in a mostly "fictional" way.

• Since newspaper ads. play an important part in many of his films, a real-life ad., in which Linder is looking for a new apartment, was added to the Chronicle pages.

• Some earlier release dates of 1909/11-films, such as Amoureux de la femme à barbe, La vengeance du bottier and La flûte merveilleuse, were found.

• A 1903 military record has been uncovered, which contains his "nom de guerre" Max Linder for the first time.

• Memoirs of Suzanne Pathé emerged, which suggest that, before working for Pathé Frères, Max made his first film(s) for the company of her father, Théophile Pathé.


10 June 2017

• UK release titles added to Les tribulations d'un neveu and Fritt et Plock détectives, and UK/US release titles to Chaussure trop étroite and Première sortie.

20 April 2017

• Earlier release dates of Les débuts d'un yachtman and Mariages imprévus and

• further confirmations that Linder did appear in Création de la serpentine (1908) and Madame a ses vapeurs (1907) were found.

• The UK/US release title of Madame a ses vapeurs has been identified.

• Another title Aventure orageuse has been added to the list of films, in which Linder may have taken part in.

• Full text of some 1917-articles, as well as two further translations of his 1914 interview with "The World" Magazine in Swedish (unintentionally illustrated by "BIO" with a picture of Max-"Imitator" André Séchan) and Finnish were added.

• Thanks to two articles in French ("Lausanne artistique") from 1918,
