The Paris Story - 1789
10 August 2006 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

This 30 minute dramatization presented on "The Plymouth Playhouse" was originally aired on May 10, 1953. The Paris story was Part 2 of the classic "The Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens.

This episode 5 of the "ABC Album" was so much better than episode 4 that was aired on early TV the week before. With the French revolution, there was much more excitement, and for being so short , was done rather well.

Judith Evelyn played the role of Therese Defarge. She was very convincing as the French revolutionary. Thanks to IMDb, I noticed that she played several small parts for Alfred Hitchcock, including the movie "Rear Window". Lucille Pierlot played the role of the Seamstress. Look at Part 1, the London story, for the rest of the cast members.

Getting to watch this on DVD made me appreciate how far TV has evolved since the early 1950's. This short was a Historic classic !
