Whenever I see The Cabinet of Dr Caligari, I think of Alphonse Laurencic

And here. I would dearly love to find out more about Alphonse and his creations. Someone once showed me a magazine with a few relevant pictures, but I’ve forgotten who/what/where.

All but the blind will have noticed my background tribute on this blog’s front page to Robert Wiene. The OpenFlix/YouTube publishing of Dr Caligari is a wonderful moment. Now, hopefully, the rest of his output, and sound mashups of Dr C. Wikipedia says that he was working with Cocteau on one when he died. Maybe Johnny Depp or someone from that stream would like to put up some dosh, and, if I don’t get the score contract, at least employ my organ (almost finished) and my monkey (still around) for the fairground scenes.
