Les films de Versailles

 There is a new photo exhibition on the outside walls of the king's veg garden! This time, it's about films that have Versailles -whether palace or city- as setting. VDP is now trying to remember if she ever saw the 1956 Marie-Antoinette movie with Michèle Morgan, Richard Todd and Jacques Morel! There is an alley on Artsy Versailles.

Il y a une nouvelle expo photo sur les murs du potager du roi. Cette fois-ci, le thème c'est le cinéma et plus précisément, les films tournés à Versailles, que ce soit au château ou dans la ville. Du coup, VDP est incapable de se rappeler si elle a déjà vu Marie-Antoinette avec Michèle Morgan... Et vous, vous les avez tous vus ? Il y a une allée sur Artsy Versailles.

Quite a collage!

I don't think I've seen that Marie Antoinette film, though I'm familiar with some of the actors.

I've not see that version, though I do like the poster.

I think I'd love this film fest! I've only seen that recent Sofia Coppola take on Marie Antoinette (it looked dazzling, but I can see why it got such mixed reviews), I'd be curious what this older one's like!

Quelques-uns mais certainement pas tous. Quelle excellente idée! Tout un art que ces affiches.
J'ai été assez intriguée pour aller voir le sujet du film "Liberté, Égalité, Choucroute" en voici un que j'aimerais bien voir :-)

I really enjoy vintage posters.. and if they happen to be French vintage posters oh la! la! nice :)
btw I would buy some Thé Marie-Antoinette just for that very pretty pink container :)

Ah, the vintage posters are always the best!

I did find a clip from this movie (Marie Antoinette) on YouTube, so maybe if you watch it, you'll remember. Looks like a classic all right.

CinemaScope brought back some good memories of my childhood. So did the name Richard Todd. Thank you.

Thank goodness the old movie channel here in the states TCM plays them. Plenty of time to catch-up.

1956 that's awhile back. I might have seen it but not til it was on TV. Movie posters are neat to look at.

The boy and girl in the pic are Mike (Cheri's son and my G-son and Kylee my g-daughter. Isn't it just a neat picture.

the stinkin' computer has been out all day yesterday until about midnight. Grrrr!!!

Trop sympa comme idee pour une exhibition. J'en suis sur il y a plein de films avec Versailles comme lieu. Ces anciens affiches sont aussi sympas.

Looks like some oldies but goodies. I've seen one Marie Antoinette film but not this one. Richard Todd is familiar, however.

Looks like fun times in Versailles!
