Fifth Avenue Playhouse Shows Films in French

Download PDF for this date

On lower Fifth Avenue at 12th Street, a little playhouse brings to New York movies of interest to lovers of France and to those familiar with the French language. While the films themselves are usually entertaining, the shorts showing different sections of France are of especial interest. Beginning Friday night, the Fifth Avenue Playhouse is showing “Criez-le sur les Toits,” or “Shout It from the House Tops,” featuring two of France’s well known stars, Simone Heliard and Saint-Granier. For those who do not understand French, there are English dialogue titles. B. F.
