My introduction to Les Miserables w as on stage in Boston. I was enraptured by the stage version. I watched TCM present three back to back screen versions a few nights ago and loved even the black and white rendering of this awesome story.
EWTN has presented a couple of programs on the new movie that made me believe it to be well worth seeing again. I hope the operatics don’t get entirely lost on the audience’s appreciation of a classic story of Good and Evil, virtue and vice. We are so lacking for healthy lessons at the movies.
I watched this too ! I loved the 1935 version. I don't see why this has to be a musical ??? The 1935 version told the story just fine....
Amen. When the best we can do this Christmas season is Quentin Tarantino, we're in a bad way.
