Monsieur Beaucaire

Monsieur Beaucaire
Monsieur Beaucaire premiered August 18, 1924.

After the exhausting Mineralava Tour and the exhausting litigation with Lasky/Paramount, Valentino returned more or less on his terms to the studio to complete his contractual obligations.  Monsieur Beaucaire, while lavish and well made, it was not what the fans were expecting.

Monsieur Beaucaire has gotten a bad rap over the years, while very different from the Valentino norm, it does showcase his subtle talent at comedy, and as usual, provides a nice dressing scene of Valentino!
