The Crime of Monsieur Lange

Don't miss your chance to see The Crime of Monsieur Lange playing at Laemmle’s Royal Theatre November 22 - 30.

After Amedée Lange’s (René Lefèvre) maliciously charming boss Batala (Jules Berry) is presumed dead following his flight from debt collectors, Lange, with the help of his lover Valentine (Florelle), helps organize a community of workers into a cooperative publishing house for his hit Western serial “Arizona Jim.”

“Of all Renoir’s films Monsieur Lange is the most spontaneous, the
richest in miracles of camera work, the most full of pure beauty and
truth. In short, it is a film touched by divine grace.”

— François Truffaut
