When this film had a re-release in July 1944, the role originally played by Marcel Dalio was been cut, and his name was removed from the credits and the posters, because he was Jewish. In that print of the film, Dalio's scenes have been reshot with Fred Pasquali, but his voice is still used on the soundtrack. See more »
Some 70 years after it came out, this film, in my opinion, did not take any wrinkle!
Definitely, Louis Jouvet was an extraordinary actor In Entrée Des Artistes, once more, his play touches the spectator holds it breathless
To tell the truth, in this movie, all the actors have fantastic acting, perfect diction and a common quality: the theatrical dimension and by mentioning only Jouvet, I am strongly unfair with the other comedians.
Hope they might forgive me, if you don't!
Allégret, with a consumed art, takes us along in the world of the actors, like in the world of the human beings: the drama in real life, the comedy at the theater
And even if I must admit that I might have preferred a different end, incorrigible optimist that I am, it keeps a coherent dramatic sense.
In few words, I thus adored this film, even if the quality of the VHS can only make me consider it regrettable that there was yet no restoration...
If you're able to see it, don't miss it!
***A film is never really good unless the camera is an eyes in the head of a poet Orson Welles***
