A killer of young women, dubbed Bluebeard, is loose in Paris. Lucille and her friends meet Gaston Morrell, a puppeteer. He invites them to a show the next night; they go. Afterwards, he walks with Lucille; she offers to make costumes for his next show, he accepts, and feelings develop that may lead to love. She suspects he has a tragic past. Meanwhile, his leaving the show with Lucille prompts the jealousy of Renee, Gaston's sometime lover. Lucille's younger sister, Francine, comes back to Paris - her boyfriend is Inspector Lefebre, who's hunting for Bluebeard. Some clues point toward Lamart, a greedy art dealer. Who is in danger, and can Gaston be trusted? Written by
The Best DVD Edition Of "Bluebeard" is the Roan Group's Edition!
Yes, there are many DVD editions of this film available out there and apart from this one, ALL of the other editions that I've seen are terrible quality products; too dark, too grainy, too much noise on the soundtrack, soundtrack too low, an edition which used a master of the film that has the charming puppet show sequence from Gounod's opera "Faust" sloppily cut in places, etc. The best DVD edition that I've seen is certainly this one and it's on a triple feature DVD called Black & Blue Collection which is available through the Roan Group.com. The other films on that DVD are "Black Dragons" and a nice, bright, clean version of "The Black Raven". This Roan Group presentation of "Bluebeard" is, without a doubt, the best way of seeing the film on DVD.
