Moulin Rouge

(John Huston, 1952)

Introduced by Grover Crisp, Executive Vice President Asset Management, Film Restoration and Digital Management, Sony Pictures, and Margaret Bodde, Executive Director, The Film Foundation

New Restoration

José Ferrer embodies French painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) in this stunning cinematic recreation of his life and the bohemian culture centered around Paris’s legendary burlesque hall Moulin Rouge. Shooting in Technicolor, director John Huston wanted to evoke Toulouse-Lautrec’s rich color palette—which can now be fully enjoyed as intended for the first time in decades with this meticulous restoration! With Zsa Zsa Gabor, Christopher Lee, and Peter Cushing. (119 mins., 4K DCP)
