Jacques Feyder’s first film for Films Albatros is the story of a young boy (Jean Forest) who lives with his widowed mother (Cécile Guyon) in a lower-middle-class Paris neighborhood when he is “discovered” by a rich American widow, Mrs. Maranet (Françoise Rosay in her first important role), who decides to adopt the boy and give him a “proper education.” This charming film was recently restored by the Cinémathèque française who duplicated the original tinting. (TRT: 112 mins.)
