The Devil

I restored these photos from Mr. A’s first starring role in (and as) THE DEVIL in 1908. Each century-old photo is a beautiful 11×14 inches but had faded or turned almost entirely brown by the time the Arliss Archives received it. Isn’t technology wonderful?

Mr. A gives two performances – first where he “helps” the star-crossed lovers…

…then taking the audience into his confidence as to his real motives.

Eventually, of course, the poor souls realize who is their “friend.”
