Twas a long long time ago...
1 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

...French talkies had happened.But ,with a few exceptions (Abel Gance filming a disaster movie: "la Fin du Monde") ,most of the directors contented themselves with filmed stage productions.Even if Maurice Tourneur's work was not performed on stage before ,its very structure speaks volumes: The first part takes place in les "Folies Bergères" on stage ;it begins with a revue complete with the military march "Auprès de Ma Blonde" ,scenes from the French eighteenth century or from a chocolate-box Russia ;the plot only begins after fifteen interminable minutes.

The second part takes place almost entirely in a courtroom,and the actors can overact in the good old theatrical way.

"Accusée levez-vous "is a moderately entertaining work by Maurice Tourneur whose best film ,"La Main du Diable", in the fantasy and horror film field,should appeal to people who like such works as "Rosemary's baby" or "the haunting" .

The plot: Gaby and her squeeze André are music hall artists in les Folies Bergères ;alas ,the star of the show covets him;she's slain and Gaby becomes the main suspect;she's soon arrested and tried for murder.

The most interesting,in this very banal detective story,is the way they treat Gaby;sometimes it predates Henri Georges Clouzot's work with Brigitte Bardot "La Vérité" (The Truth).Gaby lives with André ,but they are not married,they have been living in sin for six years.And however,the judge points out,Gaby was carefully taught,her parents wanted her to marry a well-respected man -but she did not want to and she left home- and she became an entertainer (although she says she is an artist),at the time a not so respectable occupation.

Gaby Morlay is well cast as the lead.Charles -Diaboliques- Vanel appears as the victim's shady husband.
