Anthology Film Archives presents Jean Cocteau's romantic French fantasy Beauty and the Beast (1946) adaptation of the traditional fairy tale of the same name. Starring Jean Marais and Josette Day; score by Georges Auric.

In French with English subtitles.


[P]erhaps the most sensuously elegant of all filmed fairy tales. As a child escapes from everyday family life to the magic of a storybook, so, in the film, Beauty’s farm, with its Vermeer simplicity, fades in intensity as we are caught up in the Gustave Dore extravagance of the Beast’s enchanted landscape. …Jean Marais is a magnificent beast.” –Pauline Kael
