The Wheel

The Wheel is the English title for Abel Gance's 1923 silent film La Roue. I saw Gance's Napoleon a little over a year ago.

This video does not have English intertitles/subtitles.
Part 1 (about 18 minutes):

Part 2 (about 1 1/2 hours): has a description and short review. They list the release at 94 minutes, so that's about right, though there's no seamless transition between the videos above and no end credits or "The End" shot. Having watched it, it feels like key elements are missing. Either that or I need English subtitles to make sense of it.
