The murder of the Duc de Guise in 1588
Typical epic movie of this time, but one of the first great production in history: famous actors from the Comedie Française and one of the best theater director, André Calmette.

The setting is fine and rich for the time but the interpretation is a little pathetic and updated.

L'assassinat du Duc de Guise is above all a rarity because of the composer: it was the first and only music composed by very famous classic composer Camille Saint Saens.
