Beauty and the Beast by Jean Cocteau (France, 1946, 93 min.). See the original film version of the classic fairy tale before Disney got their hands on it! In this sublime adaptation of Jeanne-Marie LePrince de Beaumont’s fairy-tale masterpiece—in which the pure love of a beautiful girl melts the heart of a feral but gentle beast—is a landmark of motion picture fantasy, with unforgettably romantic performances by Jean Marais and Josette Day. The spectacular visions of enchantment, desire, and death have become timeless icons of cinematic wonder. In French with English subtitles. This film compliments the course Myths, Folklore, and Fairy Tales from around the World.
