Le Baron de l'Ecluse Details


This is another standard romantic drama geared toward the talents of popular French actor Jean Gabin who plays the lead, a Baron bereft of everything except his title, his inventive mind, and his ability to charm women. The lucky Baron wins a boat in a card game and takes off with his former lover to find new adventures. Adverse circumstances land them in a small town, where the Baron's seafaring companion leaves for more attractive scenery offered by a wealthy local man. Meanwhile, there is a certain charming cafe owner that the Baron finds irresistible -- at least for awhile. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
