Petite Mort

Author(s): Beatrice Hitchman


Mesdames et Messieurs, presenting La Petite Mort, or, A Little Death ... A silent film, destroyed in a fire in 1913 at the Pathe studio, before it was seen even by its director. A lowly seamstress, who makes the costumes she should be wearing, but believes her talent -and the secret she keeps too -will soon get her a dressing room of her own. A beautiful house in Paris, with a curving staircase, a lake, and locked rooms. A famous -and dashing -creator of spectacular cinematic illusions, husband to a beautiful, volatile actress, the most adored icon of the Parisian studios. All fit together, like scenes in a movie. And as you will see, this plot has a twist we beg you not to disclose...
