The Rex Ingram Retrospective: 'Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse'.


Rex Ingram was born in Dublin, but made Hollywood his home in the 1920's, where he directed all the 'greats' such as Rudolph Valentino and Alice Terry. In the 1930's he set up a European rival to Hollywood in Nice. The season will show five of his greatest silent classics. The Rex Ingram Retrospective opens with 'The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse', the world-wide sensation, which launched Rudolph Valentino. It will be introduced by Liam O'Leary.
