COMPLETE FILMOGRAPHY WITH SYNOPSIS
Cast (feature film)
A European vacation turns a teenaged girl into a woman.
In turn-of-the-century Paris, a broke young man gets a job working in draper's shop run by an older woman and her two lovely young asssistants. Eventually, much romantic fooling around ensues.
Witty narration follows the history of Versailles Palace; founded by Louis XIII, enlarged by autocratic Louis XIV, whose personal affairs and amours, and those of his two successors, are followed in more detail to the start of the Revolution, after which the story is brought rapidly up to date. A huge cast plays mainly historical persons who appear briefly.
French painter Toulouse-Lautrec fights to find love despite his physical limitations.
Charles Pellegrin, 40-year-old country doctor, buys a practice in Arles, a provincial town near Marseille. In five years, he has a large practice and a lovely (but more efficient than passionate) wife, when he meets spectacularly sexy, sensuous Martine, who seduces him. Soon, he's honoring that old French custom of keeping a mistress. At first Martine brings romance, then passion into his life...then black jealously and despair.
