Description

Starring: Pauline Starke, Donald Crisp, LeRoy Mason

Plot: Yes, it’s true, an all color silent movie! The title refers to Leif Ericsson, who leaves Norway to search for new lands west of Greenland. On the way he vies for the love of Helga with his companion Egil and Alwin, an English slave. More conflict arises when he stops at the colony of his father (Eric the Red) in Greenland, for Leif has converted to Christianity, which his father hates. He also has to deal with the unrest of his crew, who fear falling off the edge of the Earth.

There are so many two-strip Technicolor features lost (Laurel and Hardy’s The Rogue Song (1930) comes to mind) or just partially intact, that it’s a pleasure to see one that seems not only intact (with no black and white inserts) but also as beautiful as originally released. This film is not colorized, as is often done with early black and white films; it was filmed in color, but without the yellow component that was added in the mid 30’s that most of us know as (three-strip) Technicolor.
