The Living Image (Le Vertige)

cast: Emmy Lynn, Jaque Catelain.

year: 1926

director: Marcel L’Herbier

runtime: 130

Le Vertige provided L’Herbier with another opportunity to hone a fiercely modernist aesthetic and to star his muse Jaque Catelain. Cast in a double role as a murdered officer in revolutionary Petrograd and his ‘living image’ who haunts the French Riviera, Catelain showcases sharp double-breasted jackets, geometric dressing gowns and urbane sportswear designed by Sonia Delaunay and Paris’s high society tailor Yose. The film also features décor by Robert Mallet-Stevens and furnishings by Pierre Chareau and Robert Delaunay.
