  • Soigne ton gauche

    1936. France. Directed by René Clément. Screenplay by Tati, Jean-Marie Huard. With Tati, Max Martel, Clinville. Young Tati, a passionate sportsman and a master of pantomime, co-wrote and starred in this early sketch film that plays on a classic routine of silent-era comedians like Mack Sennett, Charles Chaplin, and Max Linder: the underdog in the boxing ring. In French; English subtitles. 20 min.

  • Sylvie et le fantôme

    1945. France. Directed by Claude Autant-Lara. Screenplay by Jean Aurenche, based on the play by Alfred Adam. With Odette Joyeux, Jacques Tati. Autant-Lara’s lovely and sadly forgotten wartime fantasy stars Joyeux as a beautiful teenage heiress who falls in love with the ghost of her dead grandmother’s lover, charmingly and touchingly played by Tati in a rare appearance in another director’s film. Print courtesy Archives françaises du film and SNC. In French; English subtitles. 90 min.
