Title: The Earrings of Madame De... (1956)
Post by: moorman on January 17, 2019, 03:31:21 PM
Max Ophüls directs this masterful story about a noble housewife (Danielle Darrieux ) and a pair of earrings given to her by her husband General Andre De... ( Charles Boyer).  The story follows the convoluted tale of how the earrings changed ownership several times.  One of the owners is a suitor of Ms. De... a Baron played wonderfully by Vittorio De Sica.  Charles Boyer did a excellent job of the husband who gave his wife and suitor plenty of rope before he reeled them in.  The film is very gorgeous with cinematography by Christian Matras.  Another solid French film that i rate a solid 9 out of 10...
