Dreams (1955)

A businesswoman and a model work through the man problems that haunt their sleep.

DirIngmar Bergman CastHarriet Andersson , Eva Dahlbeck , Gunnar Björnstrand .

LEONARD MALTIN REVIEW:

D: Ingmar Bergman. Eva Dahlbeck, Harriet Andersson, Gunnar Bjornstrand, Ulf Palme, Inga Landgre.

"Sometimes fascinating but mostly vague--and, ultimately lesser--Bergman drama, about photo agency head Dahlbeck and model Andersson, and their dreams, torments, crises, oppression, relations with men. Aka JOURNEY INTO AUTUMN."

Story of a Cheat, The (1936)     PREMIERE

Learning at an early age that dishonesty pays, a man devotes his life to petty crime.

DirSacha Guitry CastSacha Guitry ,

The New York Times described it as "witty, impudent, morally subversive" and commented, "Only a man of Guitry's impudence could have succeeded in making 'The Story of a Cheat' the clever picture that it is"

Pearls of the Crown, The (1937)      PREMIERE

Seven pearls shape the destinies of all who possess them.

DirSacha Guitry CastArletty , Marcel Dalio , Sacha Guitry .

ARTICLE: http://www.tcm.com/tcmdb/title/86424/Pearls-of-the-Crown-The/articles.html

 "(writer/director) Guitry infused his famous wit in this film into a semi-historical template filled with lighthearted, inventive touches. In fact, Guitry himself assumes four roles ....for the chronicle of seven pearls, three of which have mysteriously disappeared after the others wind up on the crown of England. The origin of the gems as gifts to a young Catherine de Medici by Pope Clement VII turns into a springboard for four hundred years and hundreds of characters' worth of twists and turns including other familiar figures like Henry VIII and Mary, Queen of Scots."
