Just for the benefit of UK purchasers (and doubtless the rest of the world), you can only download this from the Warner Archive if you live in the US. The site says this is for legal reasons. Boo! Just have to buy the DVD then I suppose. I think at this price you won't have to pay any import duties but never quite sure about this.

Lillian Gish doesn't sing, but she sure could act 24 Jan 2010
By Steve Perlowski - Published on
Puccini, along with his librettists (Illica and Giacosa), brought a bourgeois sentimentality to Henri Murger's 1851 earthy novel ("Scenes de la Vie Boheme"), but oh what a whitewash. La Boheme premiered in 1896 (under the baton of Toscanini), and it has remained among the most popular of operas for well over a hundred years now.

King Vidor's silent movie classic owes most (not all) of its cinematic focus to Puccini's opera rather than the harder-edged novel by Murger. Sadly, however, the composer was already dead two years, when the MGM film made it to the silver screen in 1926.

Had Puccini been alive to see it, he would have been moved to blissful tears by the incredibly astonishing (dramatic) portrayal of his frail, consumptive heroine, Mimi, by the "First Lady of the Silent Screen," Lillian Gish. As an actress, Gish was without peer. She had the most expressive eyes, the most delicate face, and she can't have weighed more than a small canary. [I've read that Irving Thalberg actually referred to her, as Mimi.]

That being said, this is a fine film. John Gilbert is persuasive, as Rodolphe, (if a bit over the top, in a couple of scenes), and the movie, quite effectively, uses Puccini's melodies to complement the film's poignant pathos.

Given its age, the film has been, surprisingly, well preserved. Technically, the only complaint I have is a very minor one: in about three spots the film needed to be paused because the cue cards were flashed on the screen too quickly to be read (Warner should have had the diligence to fix this easily remedied glitch). Lastly, I would mention that it can be purchased relatively cheaply at Warner Archive (the listed price of which also includes shipping).

La Boheme: Gilbert and Gish unchained 12 Feb 2013
By David L. Gill - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
MGM let Gilbert and Gish loose on this film. It's the old story, immortalized by Puccini's opera and adapted in such films today as "Rent," influencing still others such as "Moulin Rouge" (Gilbert gets WAY more jealous than MacGregor does...but Roy D'Arcy's Count set a high bar for Richard Roxburgh's Duke to clear. One even wonders if Roxburgh has seen this or other D'Arcy films).

The music, at times, seems cobbled together and not terribly well-selected. But this is moderately forgivable and is not why this product got 4/5 stars from me.

On more than one occasion, the title cards were on the screen for such a short time that I could not read them and had to go back, frame by frame to find them. (I'm a really fast reader, too...I read Gone with the Wind in 3 days' time in the 8th grade.) It would've killed no one in the video department at Warner to stretch-print the title cards (or just stopped the digital transfer long enough to make them readable) so that they could be read.

The obvious thing about the Warner Archive DVDs is that they are taken from the prints restoration. That's all well and good. But if one can't figure out what's being said...come on. Let's use some judgment and make the titles appear long enough to read them.

Great movie even so. A must-have for any Gish or Gilbert fan.

The ultimate Boheme - Lillian Gish is so incredibly moving you don't miss the sound or Puccini music at all.Gilbert is great to but not in her league.
It is a very beautiful film and captures the period and story perfectly.

what a beautiful silent film.gilbert is the dashing writer rodolphe and gish the very frail mimi,nice film score what you expect for a silent film.the photography is wonderful and the perfomances flawless but the ending is sad very this film mostly for john gilbert who is great here.he is one of my favorite silent film stars in this film he wears big hats flowing white shirts and baggy pants but i guess thats how they dressed in the 1830s paris but he looks dashing in these i said a great silent film with the very beautiful and petite gish.i can watch this over and over again.
