SHE (1925 & 1935) Betty Blythe, Helen Gahagan, Randolph Scott

SHE (1925) Betty Blythe

SHE is a 1925 British-German fantasy adventure film directed by Leander de Cordova and G.B. Samuelson and starring Betty Blythe, Carlyle Blackwell, Mary Odette. It was filmed in Berlin as a co-production, and based on H. Rider Haggard's novel of the same name.

According to the opening credits, the intertitles were specially written for the film by Haggard himself (he died in 1925, the year the film was made).

The book has been a popular subject for filmmakers in the silent and sound eras, with at least five short film adaptations produced in 1908, 1911, 1916, 1917, and 1919 respectively.

The 1925 version was the first feature length adaptation, although it was trimmed from its original 98-minute running time down to 56-69 minutes for U.S. release. It is the most faithful of the three feature-length adaptations to date and follows the action, characters and locations of the original novel closely.

Running time: 56 minutes


SHE (1935) Helen Gahagan, Randolph Scott

SHE is a 1935 American film produced by Merian C. Cooper. Based on H. Rider Haggard's novel of the same name, the screenplay combines elements from all the books in the series: SHE, SHE and Allan, Ayesha: The Return of SHE and Wisdom's Daughter. The film reached a new generation of moviegoers with a 1949 re-release.

The ancient civilization of Kor is depicted in an Art Deco style with imaginative special effects. The setting is Arctic Siberia, rather than in Africa, as in the first book. The third book is set in the Himalayas.

With music by Max Steiner, the film stars Helen Gahagan, Randolph Scott and Nigel Bruce.

The title character in SHE served as the inspiration for the appearance of the Evil Queen in Walt Disney's 1937 animated Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

It was hoped that SHE would follow Cooper's previous success, King Kong. Cooper had originally intended to shoot the film in color, but budget cuts by RKO forced him to shoot the film in black and white at the last minute. However, the black and white film had disappointing results at the box office. It initially lost $180,000, although it later had a successful re-release.

In 2006, Legend Films and Ray Harryhausen colorized the film as a tribute to Cooper. The colorized trailer for SHE premiered at the 2006 Comic-Con.

SHE was considered a lost film for many years until an original print, stored in silent film star Buster Keaton's garage, was turned over to film distributor Raymond Rohauer for preservation.
