Under the Roofs of Paris (Film 101)

Plot: Albert is smitten for Pola but ends up wrongly committed in jail, in the meantime her affections are sort after by his friend, and on his release both love and friendship must be tested.

Conversation: René Clair was the first master of the sound film, and Under the Roofs of Paris was an enormous global success. For Clair, “film sonore” meant more than dialogue or song—it meant a new sort of magic where a whistle and a puff of smoke could make a train, where glass café doors could keep secrets, and where a song could hold together the world.
