Beauty and the Beast (Sep-1946)

Original Title: La Belle et la BÍte

Director: Jean Cocteau

Writers: Jean Cocteau; Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont

Keywords: Fantasy, Romance

A rose picked for his daughter while trespassing on the grounds of the Beast's hidden castle brings an old merchant the death penalty, unless he can convince one of his three daughters to take his place. Bela agrees, and while repulsed by the Beast's appearance at first, her affection and desire for him grows over time. Adaptation of a classic 17th century fairy tale, with stunning visuals, particularly impressive in light of France's devastated condition just after the war.
