    MASTER OF THE HOUSE (dual-format Blu-ray and DVD edition)Before he got up close and personal with Joan of Arc, the Danish cinema genius Carl Theodor Dreyer (Vampyr) fashioned this finely detailed, ahead-of-its-time examination of domestic life. In this heartfelt story of a housewife who, with the help of a wily nanny, turns the tables on her tyrannical husband, Dreyer finds lightness and humor; it’s a deft comedy of revenge that was an enormous box-office success and is considered an early example of feminism on-screen. Constructed with the director’s customary meticulousness and stirring sense of justice, Master of the House is a jewel of silent cinema.

    I saw a 16mm print of this presented by David Shepard back in the good old days when the Silent Film Society of Atlanta was in existence and had an annual festival. David would attend with several prints. It's a fabulous film and if you haven't seen it, you're in for a treat.
