Fanfan la Tulipe

November 25 at 3:30
East Building Auditorium

Fanfan la Tulipe features the fabled Gérard Philipe playing a warrior figure — “as bold as he is brave,” according to Madame de Pompadour. As it happens, Fanfan is also a real rogue, but then he meets his match in Gina Lollobrigida’s gypsy. (Christian-Jaque, 1952, 35mm, subtitles, 102 minutes)
