  • Massive, magnificent, splendid, the perfect epic

    I'm planning to see the "Les Miserables" musical film, but it will have to be absolutely flawless to match this magnificent epic. Hard to believe it's nearly 80 years old. The performances are all spot-on, and I especially would like to see more of Harry Baur.

  • One of the best movies you'll ever see

    Les Mis 1934 is one of the greatest movies ever made, and I cannot believe how few people have heard of it, let alone seen it. The acting is literally flawless throughout, the scale is amazing, the pacing is perfect, the music is inserted at only the most opportune times, and when it is there it is beautiful. A literally flawless movie, and it's not just a Drama, it's a Drama-War-Romance-History-Biography-Epic-Thriller-Action all in one. Absolutely amazing.

  • Les Meserables - Unforgettable!

    I am 92 years old, and I remember seeing this French version of "Les Meserables" with my 8th grade French class at the Stewart School, made available by the University of Utah's French Dept. I can never forget Fantine and her little girl, Cosette.

  • Finest, epic version of "Les Miserables"

    • James Cahill
    • 12/14/12

    Now I've seen them all, I think, and this 1934 French version is for me incomparably the finest. It's of epic length, in three parts, as long and compelling as "Children of Paradise"; music by Honnegger. The Jean Valjean of Harry Baur is one of the great performances on film--as fine as his better-known "Volpone." Not listed as one of the stars is Jean Servais who plays Marius--Servais who was a fresh young hero in the Pagnol film "Angele" from the same year, 1934, and came back twenty years later to play the anti-hero in what is for me the best of all heist films, Jules Dassin's "Rififi". I don't know the actor who was Inspector Javert, but he was up with the others. Fine period reconstructions, the battle on the barricades, all of it. Why isn't this accessible on DVD? It should be one of the Criterion collection. I would be willing to spend the hours watching it again any time.
