The Would-Be Gentleman ★★½ 1958

The Comedie Francaise troupe performs Moliere's famous farce-comedy. Valuable as a record of the famous troupe on stage. When they're long gone, our grandkids can enjoy this. We can too (if we can't afford the trip to France), though it's less a film than a filming of a play. In French with English subtitles. 93m/C VHS . FR Louis Seigner, Jean Meyer, Jean Piat; D: Jean Meyer; C: Henri Alekan.
