THE LOUVRE

USA, 1964 (MIFF 1966, Programme 25)

Director: John S. Sughrue Jr

The world's greatest collection of art housed in the Louvre, also reveals a fascinating view of the history of France from the eleventh century to the end of World War II. Charles Boyer narrates the script as if he were Mr. France himself, proud of his country, charmed with its history, and not above a little humour.

Award, San Francisco Festival; Thomas Alva Edison Foundation Award; George Foster Peabody Award; 'Emmy' Awards.
