Episode 618: Children of Paradise (1945)

Episode 618: The Children of Paradise (1945) Guest Co-Hosts: Samm Dieghan, Keith Gordon

French Month continues with a look at Marcel Carné's Children of Paradise (1945). Set in the early-mid 1800s, the film tells a winding tale of the woman Garance (Arletty) and the four men in her orbit: The mime Baptiste (Jean-Louis Barrault), the actor Frederick (Pierre Brasseur), the criminal Larcenaire (Marcel Herrand), and the aristocrat Edouard (Louis Salou).

Keith Gordon and Samm Deighan join Mike to discuss the film as well as the compelling circumstances around its making.
