If I remember correctly, Abel Gance's NAPOLEON had scenes which were split
into three parts representing the French flag.

Glen or Glenda? (1953)
Only the split is horizontal...and I don't think the effect is the same.
Lugosi looks "down" on scurrying multitudes.

Does anyone know of films that used the split-screen effect for
telephone conversations prior to Pillow Talk (1959)?  Also, have any
scholars written specifically on this effect?

Thanks!
