Spanning seven decades, this thriller offers insights into early Parisian film making and the amoral glitterati who brought it to dizzying life. Adele Roux starred in PetiteMort , a 1914 silent film that was believed destroyed in a fire at the Pathé factory before it could be distributed. Adele’s involvement in a murder case later that year ensured that the film was not reshot. Provocative snippets of the actress’s titillating memoirs, told in her old age to journalist Juliette Blanc, chronicle her passionate affairs with seductive special-effects inventor André Durand and his ravishing and sinister actress wife, Luce. The memoir’s chilling glimpses of the leading characters’ precociously lethal early lives counterpoint the 1967 rediscovery of the lost film—with one crucial scene missing.
