The Phantom Carriage (Duvivier, 1939): Cine Lumiere, 2pm


This Sunday French Classics screening, featured every week at the Cine Lumiere, is part of the Scalarama season which runs throughout September. Full details here.

Cine Lumiere introduction:
The creaking wheels of the phantom carriage ridden by Death himself – and driven by the hapless man who dies at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s eve – provide the sinister backdrop for this rare French fantasy film. Pierre Fresnay is remarkable as hard-drinking tough guy, David, whose buddy Georges haunts his nights as the ghostly carriage driver. A woman from the Salvation Army will try to save David from the fate of his friend.

Here is the trailer.
