 Starring Dennis King, Jeanette MacDonald, O.P. Heggie, Lillian Roth, 
Warner Oland
Directed by Ludwig Berger

Print: black/white
Runtime: 104 min.
Genre: musical

The story takes place in medieval France. Poet-rogue Francois Villon, 
sentenced to hang by King Louis XI for writing derogatory verses about 
him, is offered a temporary reprieve. His hanging will be postponed for 24 
hours, and in that time he must defeat the invading Burgundians and win 
the love of the beautiful Katherine.




The Vagabond King (1956)
Starring Kathryn Grayson, Oreste Kirkop, Rita Moreno, Cedric Hardwicke, 
Walter Hampden, Leslie Nielsen
Directed by Michael Curtiz

Print: color
Runtime: 86 min.
Genre: musical

In 1461, French nobles fearing King Louis XI may seize their lands, join 
forces with the rebellious Duke of Burgundy to overthrow the king. One 
of the Duke's captains suggests enlisting the aid of Francois Villon who is 
known to oppose the king and is leader of the Vagabonds, a group that 
robs the rich to aid the poor. In league with Burgundy, Villon and two of 
his cohorts enter Paris, but are captured by the king's men. The king, 
recognizing Villon's power over the people, proposes that Villon defend 
Paris against Burgundy and help uncover traitors in the court.


If I Were King (1938)

Starring Ronald Colman, Basil Rathbone, Frances Dee, Ellen Drew, C. V. France, Henry Wilcoxon
Directed by Frank Lloyd


Print: Action/Adventure
Runtime:102 min.
Genre: Drama


Set in 15th century Paris, a rogue poet matches wits with a crafty king and leads the Empire to victory in the spectacular romantic adventure If I Were King. Ronald Colman is at his swashbuckling best as Francois Villon and Basil Rathbone gives a superb Academy Award-nominated performance for Best Supporting Actor as Louis XI, a tyrant with a besieged city on the verge of revolt. When a twist of fate makes Villon the chief constable, the king gives him a week to save the city and win the love of a beautiful princess (Frances Dee)… or die! Deliciously wicked repartee abounds in the lavish, fast-paced entertainment which writer Preston Sturges claimed as one of his finest achievements.
