The Criterion Collection

Near the end of his long and celebrated career, master filmmaker Jean Renoir indulged his lifelong obsession with life-as-theater and in rapid succession directed The Golden Coach (1953). French Cancan (1955), and Elena And Her Men? (1956), three delirious films infatuated with the past, love and artifice. Awash in jubilant Technicolor, each film interweaves public display and private feelings, expressed through the talents of three immortal film icons: Anna Magnani, Jean Gabin, and Ingrid Bergman. the Criterion Collection is proud to present these three majestic films by Jean Renoir for the first time on DVD.

The Golden Coach
The Golden Coach (Le Carrosse d'or) is a ravishing eighteenth century comic fantasy about a viceroy who receives an exquisite golden coach, and gives it to the tempestuous star of a touring commedia dell'arte company. Master director Jean Renoir's sumptuous tribute to the theater, presented here in the English version he favored, is set to the music of Antonio Vivaldi and built around vivacious and volatile star Anna Magnani.

French Cancan
Nineteenth-century Paris comes vibrantly alive in Jean Renior's exhilarating tale of the opening of the world-renowned Moulin Rouge. Jean Gabin plays the wily impresario Danglard, who makes the cancan all the rage while juggling the love of two beautiful women-an Egyptian bellydancer and a naive working girl turned cancan star. This celebration of life, art, and the City of Light-with a cameo by Edith Piaf- is a Technicolor tour de force by a master of modern cinema.

Elena And Her Men
Set amidst the military maneuvers and Quatorze Juillet carnivals of turn-of-the-century France, Jean Renior's exuberant romantic comedy stars Ingrid Bergman in her most sensual role as a beautiful, but impoverished Polish princess who drives men of all stations to fits of desperate love.
