Beauty and the Beast
New 35mm Print of French Fairytale Adaptation
Thu April 23
2009, 7:00 & 9:00

In this classic fable, a poor merchant (Marcel André) picks a rose for his daughter, Belle (Josette Day), angering the garden's owner, a half-human/half-beast (Jean Marais) who threatens the merchant with death but agrees to accept one of the merchant's daughters instead. To save her father, Belle offers herself and goes to live at the castle, where she finds the beast to be less fearsome and more sympathetic than expected. Poet and surrealist Jean Cocteau directed his black-and-white film in 1946 in part to acknowledge the way the miseries of World War II had affected some men, turning them into apparent monsters who deserved more compassion from society.
