John Huston’s classic fictional film is a vigorous study of the celebrated and innovative artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. With Jose Ferrer as the artist, Huston successfully captures the atmosphere and bohemian life in Montmarte, full of colorful characters as seen through the sad and dejected eyes of Lautrec. The film won the Silver Lion at the 1953 Venice Film Festival. (35mm presentation)
