Au Bonheur des Dames
Made at the dawn of the sound era, this long-forgotten feature from legendary director Julien Duvivier marked the filmmaker's last silent work. An adaptation of Emile Zola's 1883 novel of the same name, it stars French screen siren Dita Parlo as Denise, an orphaned woman who relocates to the City of Lights. She initially plans to take a job in her uncle's small store, but finds more promising opportunities at the massive department store conglomerate across the street, where the proprietors will do anything in their power to run Denise's uncle out of business - and where Denise promptly falls head over heels in love with the owner. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
