Moulin Rouge is a 1928 British silent drama film directed by Ewald André Dupont and starring Olga Tschechowa, Eve Gray and Jean Bradin. The film is set in and around the Moulin Rouge cabaret in Paris.


The film was made at Elstree Studios by British International Pictures. It was Dupont's last fully silent film, although several of his later sound films were released with silent versions. Dupont was one of a number of leading Continental technicians and actors hired by BIP in the late 1920s to try and establish the company as a leading international producer. Alfred Junge worked as Art Director.


Restoration and home media

Moulin Rouge was originally released in 1928 as a silent film with live musical accompaniment, running approximately 130 minutes. The following year, it was edited and re-released with a sychronised score composed by John Reynders, which included various sound effects. This version ran for 86 minutes and is available from several budget DVD labels.[1]

In 2017, the film was restored in HD to close to its original running time, at 127 minutes. Reynder's 1929 score was repurposed for this version, but as it was considerably shorter, over 120 music edits were made in order for it to fit.[2] The restored version has been released in the UK on Blu-ray[3] and DVD[4] by Network.
