Dir. Maurice Tourneur (1918). Anticipating The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari by a year in its pop expressionism and deliberately anachronistic style, The Bluebird might be subtitled A Pageant of Living Pictures particularly as much of it concerns the animation of household objects. In a concession to naturalism, Tourneur allows his relaxed child performers to basically groove on the hallucinated doings around them.
