Paris 1900 (1947) DVD5
Experience what life was like during "La Belle Epoque" with this documentary on Paris that spans from 1900 to 1914. Beginning with the Paris Exposition of 1900 and the completion of the Eiffel Tower, the film progresses through cultural, technological, and social changes, from peaceful and sometimes naive times to the rumbling foreshadowing of the war that would disrupt France and Europe for years to come.
Paris 1900 vividly conveys the mood of a world in transition. It contains many historically important images. Most memorable is the rare footage of such figures as artist Claude Monet, writer Edmond Rostand (author of Cyrano de Bergerac), filmmaker Ferdinand Zecca, not to mention a sequence where a young Maurice Chevalier gives his impression of cabaret performer Felix Mayol, in the company of Mistinguet.
