Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 318: Mon Nov 14

Fanny (Allegret, 1932): Regent Street Cinema, 6.30pm


Chicago Reader review:
Marc Allegret's 1932 film of part two of Marcel Pagnol's trilogy. In Marius the boy and girl were separated; now Fanny prepares to marry the kind old merchant—until the unexpected return of Marius threatens to overturn her plans. A marvelously alive film, well suited to the vitality of Pagnol's story, and a perfect sequel to Korda's first installment. Pagnol was to assume directorial control with the next part.
Don Druker

Here (and above) is the opening.
