un chapeau de paille D'italie


THE FLORENTINER HaT is a silent film comedy by director René Clair from the year of publication 1928 (production year 1927), based on the stage play A Florentine Hat (1851) by Eugène Labiche and Marc Michel.

Film Details:

Fadinard ( Albert Préjean ) is about to marry the beautiful
Hélène ( Maryse Maia :). But his luck is put to the test when his horse
eats the straw hat of a walker …

The Film was positively received by the critics, and it proved to be one of the most durable of French silent films. By transposing the action to the 1890s when the play had found particular success with audiences, the film was seen as a satire of the play itself and of the kind of audience that would have enjoyed it
