Product Description

Product Description

Les Misérables (1935)
Victor Hugo's most acclaimed novel comes brilliantly to life in this impeccably performed, magnificently filmed screen adaptation. Fredric March stars as Valjean, the ex-convict who rises against all odds from galley slave to mayor. Charles Laughton is Javert, the fanatical police inspector who dedicates his life to recapturing Valjean. A vivid depiction of the appalling poverty and social strife of 19th-century France, this version of Les Misérables does splendid justice to the original novel.

Les Misérables
(1952)
Michael Rennie, fresh from his success in the sci-fi classic The Day the Earth Stood Still, cuts a very handsome figure as Jean Valjean, and Debra Paget, who would later reteam with Rennie in four more films, makes for a stunning Cosette in this powerful retelling of the classic epic. Costars include Robert Newton (Treasure Island), Edmund Gwenn (Miracle on 34th Street), Cameron Mitchell (How to Marry a Millionaire), Sylvia Sidney (Mars Attacks!) and Elsa Lanchester (The Bride of Frankenstein).

To be honest I got this for the 1935 version.....the other one will remain unwatched. It was as good as I had remembered it to be......amazing artwork, its beautifully shot and Laughton and March act the socks off each other. Wonderful entertainment.

Only the 1935-version of this film is already worth buying this set of two dvd's. Frederic March is great, as usual, and the story is heartwarming.

The 1952-version is something different. Also a good version, but some storylines and settings are quite different. And Michael Rennie is no Frederic March.

I do not know which version is the most faithful adaption of the book, but it doesn't matter much if you haven't read it and are just looking for an evening's entertainment.

Usually I do not care to watch many different versions of the same story, but after having watched these two movies, I'm looking forward to see the 2012-version with the wonderful Hugh Jackman, although that version is a bit long (over two and a half hours). But I think Jackman's performance could come close to or even match March's.

Old cinema at its best! Fantastic film full of sentiment. The tragedy and happiness of Jean Valjean's life are portrayed wonderfully here in Hugo's bittersweet tale of injustice set in the background of the French Revolution. Wonderful

My husband and I were absolutely thrilled with the two versions of the story, and how well each version worked in its own way to convey the utter misery of the downtrodden and the complex psychological characters like Javert. Though the sets were dated in the first version (1935), Frederick March is superb as Jean Veljean and well balanced with Charles Laughton as Javert, nominated at the time for the Oscar for Best Picture. The little known second version (1952) with Michael Rennie and Robert Newton as Javert is also compelling viewing and considered to be the best version by some; however, to us the acting does not quite live upto the other. Well worth buying to make up your own mind on which you prefer.

A Double Film Pack of Victor Hugo,s fantastic story of early french poverty. Valjean is superebly played firstly by Fredric March
and later by Michael Rennie. The settings are perfect and picture quality is brilliant! Javert too, is well played firstly by the great
Charles Laughton and then by the Equally Capable Robert Newton! This Double production should not be missed, especially
if you are a fan of Victor Hugo,s Great Story!

Two excellent films for the price of one. The Fredrick March version is a classic. I'd seen it before & was glad to now have it on dvd. The Michael Rennie version I'd never heard of before. I didn't think he could carry it off, as he is in my opinion, quite aristocratic. But I have to say he does a marvelous job, being equally convincing as the poor Jean Valjean, & the later successful one. Both films are well worth a look. Both are thoroughly enjoyable & entertaining.

I am a Les Mis addict. But even allowing for that these two films sre brilliant, considering the age of them both, especially the Frederic March version. Highly recommended. Plus the usual excellent Amazon service.
