A Feature film by Pierre Chenal

Produced by Général Productions

Release in France : 19/02/1937

    Synopsis

    Mathias Pascal, saddled with a stupid wife and a nagging mother-in-law, leaves home and is extremely lucky at several gambling resorts. He returns home and discovers that a drowned man, fished out of the river, bears an uncanny likeness to him and is being buried by his family as him. This, to him, is a pleasant turn of events and he goes to Rome, where he falls in love with Louise Paleari. Count Papiano, a jealous suitor of Louise's, threatens him with arrest unless he produces credentials to prove his identity.

    Subject

    Pierre Chenal initially worked on the screenplay with writer Armand Salacrou but the two men failed to agree on the mood and style envisaged by the director. Chenal engaged instead the distinguished poet and playwright Roger Vitrac. Salacrou's name remained in the credits while Vitrac's appeared only as additional dialogue writer.See more »
