Marcel Pagnol Writers: Émile Augier (play), Marcel Pagnol (scenario and dialogue) | 1 more credit » Stars: Léon Bernard, Annie Ducaux, Jean Debucourt

This is the story of a wealthy bourgeois who marries his only child, a daughter, to a penniless nobleman, because he hopes to use his son-in-law to get a title (it takes place under the reign of king Louis Philippe, sometime between 1830-1848). The son-in-law is a lazy, affected stereotype; but M. Poirier is also a stereotype --- of the obnoxious big businessman. The poor daughter, who falls in love with her husband, lets him walk all over her.
