University Press of Kentucky

In 1915, Capellani was faced with a difficult decision: staying in France at Pathé and waiting for the studio to resume activity, or crossing the Atlantic to work in the United States. He decided to leave Pathé for good when he learned that the famous theater director André Antoine had been recruited to make films. There was no friendship between Antoine and Capellani, contrary to earlier opinion. Léon Gaumont tried to recruit Capellani, which shows the standing he enjoyed in the film industry
