Drama
The first installment of Marcel Pagnol's Fanny trilogy, this film by Alexander Korda (1931) features the great French actor Raimu in an on-location re-creation of his stage triumph. If you've seen Joshua Logan's execrable remake of this superb series of stories about the life of ordinary people in Marseilles, you owe it to yourself to wash out the bad taste with this and the two ensuing installments. A marvelous, lusty film by the maker of The Private Life of Henry VIII. In French with subtitles.
