From a story by Rebecca’s Daphne du Maurier. Approx. 92 min. 35mm.

“As produced by Michael Balcon, this is a plushy appointed tale, with some fetching glimpses of the French countryside and appropriately musty chateau interiors. The main musical theme is striking.”
– The New York Times

THE SWAN

TEH SWAN(1956, Charles Vidor) Middle European Princess Grace Kelly’s family can get back that throne only if she can charm visiting Crown Prince Guinness — but he seems interested only in playing football with kids and bass in the orchestra. Can tutor Louis Jourdan make him jealous? Adapted from Molnar (Liliom) play. Kelly’s Hollywood swan song. Approx. 112 min. 35mm.

“A slender and charming fable, as soft as a summer breeze.”
