Les Chansons célèbres à l'écran 1931

  • April 15, 1931
  • 90 mins
  • René Bussy

How do you preserve part of the heritage sung in cafés where singers entertain customers? By bringing them to the screen of course! And here’s how La boiteuse du regiment, La femme du roulier and Tout l’pays l’a su, famous songs from the popular French repertoire are to be found at the cinema on film and set to music. La boiteuse du régiment belongs to barrack-room comedy where a soldier pines for a beautiful lame woman who prefers to visit the officers rather than the soldiers, the la femme du roulier is desperately looking for the latter in all of the town’s taverns; in tout l’pays l’a su you have a whole village gossiping, always on the lookout for spicy, malicious bits of gossip.
