The Man Who Laughs 1928 Conrad Veidt’s Gwynplaine and The Eternal Smile

The Man Who Laughs 1928 Directed by Paul Leni and starring the outre emotive Conrad Veidt as the tragic  Gwynplaine and the lovely Mary Philbin as Dea, the blind girl who touches his carved smile with her love.

Gwynplaine is one of my favorite characters in literature, one of Hugo’s more obscure works, Leni captured his soul in  his film with the help of Veidt, perfectly!

Based on Victor Hugo’s novel “L’Homme Qui Rit”

Jo Gabriel’s song “Hold My Breath” appears on my album ISLAND through Kalinkaland Records world wide.
