Trouble in paradise
When I was five or six,we were in Paris and my mother took me to the pictures twice:first "bridge on the river Kwai" where the only things that fascinated me were a ventilator in an office and the final scene .Then the following day "les Gueux au Paradis" ,a black and white film which was not even a new release when I saw it .Those were my two first films ever.
Two jolly fellows got run over by a stagecoach.They immediately wind up in Hell ,but they do not like it (would you?) so they escape from this horrible place and knock on Heaven's door.But St Peter is not prepared to accept them either ,so back to the square one (the Earth) and do not collect any bucks.
Seeing Fernandel and Raimu together is enough for me.To know them is to love them.Period.
