Rex Ingram

University Press of Kentucky

In this chapter Ingram makes the shift into genre filmmaking, making two swashbucklers, The Prisoner of Zenda (1922), set in mythical Ruritania, and Scaramouche (1923), as well as more intimate romances. He marries Alice Terry and takes on Ramón Novarro to replace Valentino as his films’ new “Latin lover.” The chapter continues to analyze Ingram’s style and the contribution of his cinematographer, John Seitz.

Keywords:   swashbuckler, Ruritania, Ramón Novarro, Latin lover, cinematographer, John Seitz
