Marcel Pagnol (1895-1974) was a French playwright who told stories of the Provence region in southern France, including its largest city Marseille. He turned to screenwriting and directing movies as a way to make his plays more widely seen. Pagnol created some of the warmest, funniest characters ever seen on screen—even if some of them were heavies—and engendered great comic actors like Raimu and Fernandel. The Baker’s Wife, The Well-Digger’s Daughter, Jean de Florette, and Manon of the Spring (among many others) are all derived from his works. But perhaps his most enduring achievement is his beloved Marseille Trilogy—the engrossing tale of waterfront bar owner César, local girl Fanny (who sells cockles), and Fanny’s flighty lover Marius, César’s son. Though this story has been remade many times (and even turned into a stage musical), the three original films from the 1930s remain unsurpassed. We screen them in February in new digital restorations.
