    1930. France. Directed by René Clair. Cinematography by Georges Périnal. Sets by Lazare Meerson. With Albert Préjean, Pola Illéry, Gaston Modot, Edmond Gréville. Clair’s first talkie is a charming, lyrical musical evocation of a magical Paris of the mind, a Paris in a state of grace, long before Max Ophuls, François Truffaut, and even Jean Renoir. This print has no English subtitles. For a full plot synopsis, see curator Charles Silver's post on Inside/Out. In French; no subtitles. 95 min.
