I feel so luck to have caught this rare film at CINEFEST the annual early & rare film festival in Syracuse, NY - March 2003. More film buffs should support these festivals and share their discoveries on the IMDB so other film fans can track these old titles down. VOLPONE (1941, Sirilzky Pictures, in French w/English subtitles. D: Maurice Tourneur) A cynical, unscrupulous merchant played by Harry Baur, named Volpone (aka "the fox") schemes with his servant to con his greedy `friends' out of their money by pretending to be ill and dying, knowing they will give him gifts in hopes of being listed in his will. He then sits back to enjoy the fireworks but his plan inevitably backfires, setting the stage for an ironic denouement.
