For Michel Simon's fans
24 September 2006 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

When the talkies era began,most of FRench directors contented themselves with filming stage productions.The only difference was that the audience was not here .And the leads who were at the time also stage actors (there 's a lot of French contemporary actors ,some of them very famous,who have never played on stage "live") were everything.Michel Simon makes it all worthwhile,supported by a fine actress Madeleine Renaud.But the play is not that much exciting and some viewers may yawn their head off.

Jean Choux did a better job with "Un Chien Qui Rapporte" ,one of Arletty's first parts.
