The footnotes of history on the Champs D'Elysée ,as viewed by Guitry:It all began under Marie De Medicis's regency when Concini (a nasty Italian:why do French always choose treacherous aliens to rule ?)was the real master:Les Champs Elysees were then just a large path through the wood .Later on ,a two-bit fortune teller told king Louis the Fifteenth he would die six months after the marquis De Chauvelin ; so the monarch sent all his sawbones to the noble man to take care of his health ;he put him on a diet because "if you die,my own days will be numbered".

Guitry's History Lesson
30 October 2018 | by FiahmSee all my reviews

A maths professor decides to take the morning off and instead teach his students the history of France's most famous avenue.

"Let's Take The Champs-Élysées" is a pleasant enough romantic and flag-waving whimsy, but it's a little aimless, and early on quite dull. Its interest and worth will probably depend upon how curious one is about the individual historical stories Guitry recounts, as the tales go by so fast there's little time to invest in any of the characters. The best by far is the one with Guitry himself as Louis XV, but the rest by and large end up diverting enough.

The film improves as it goes on, but it still remains something of a disappointment, all in all. Handsome to look at, though.
