Featuring gorgeous cinematography from Claude Friese-Greene, this stirring drama of romance and derring-do features an early film role for debonair Egyptian-born actor Alexandre D'Arcy, playing opposite Russian-British star Marguerite Allan. Initially released as a silent film with Pathecolor sequences in May 1929, "A Romance of Seville" was re-released in July 1930 without the stencil colouring but with new titles and a soundtrack showcasing a feature-length medley of colourful Spanish music. The Pathecolor version no longer exists, but the re-release is presented here in a brand-new transfer from original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
