The snippets of English dialogue are all spoken with French accents even though these are supposed to be Americans. Not a goof: Although this story is performed by French actors, French people emigrated to the United States prior to the American Civil War and settled in Louisiana. See more »

I remember seeing this film in a freshman English class in high school (1966). More than 30 years later, the images in the film, the emotions and especially the ending, are vivid in my memory. I was totally absorbed by the film. I have not seen it since, which is an indication of its impact.
