U.S., 1938
Directed by Frank Lloyd
Written by Preston Sturges
Starring Ronald Colman, Basil Rathbone, Frances Dee, Ellen Drew
Approx. 101 min.  New 4K Restoration.


Ronald Colman, as swashbuckling beggar-poet François Villon, engages in battle of wits with wily king Basil Rathbone in superbly-recreated 15th-century France. For his re-write of the 40-year-old play, Sturges personally translated Villon’s poetry and added some Villonesque verse of his own.
