1934 (French w/suttitles) Les Miserables available on Hulu



This version is considered to be the best, most faithful version to the book. It's long. It was filmed and released in 3 parts over 3 weeks like a TV mineseries and is about 4.5 hrs in total.

It's available for free on Hulu, but only thru tomorrow. Sorry for the late notice, but I just finished it. I'm sure it will be available for those with Huluplus beyond tomorrow. Highly recommended.

The version with Liam and Geoffery was pretty good too. Only time Uma Thurman ever acted.

I'm going to try to watch it if I can make the time. It was on YouTube but was taken down.

Indeed, somebody has gone postal on YT Les Mizzes. The Hollywood versions from 1935 (best I've ever seen) and 1952 (okay) have also been taken down within the last few months.

The 1957 French version, all 3 hours and 40 minutes of it, is still up. But no telling for how long.

Taken down -- and I wasn't able to watch it.

I tried 4 or 5 different programs to DL it -- and one of them worked.

Oh well... Still up on Hulu Plus.

I watched the version you posted. Do you know why they dubbed it? The titles are in English and the actors seem to be mouthing English. Were their accents so bad that they felt they needed to dub it out? I found it very distracting and detracting from an otherwise fine version.

Radio version starring Orson Welles -- Download here

quote:

Les Misérables was a seven-part radio series broadcast July 23–September 3, 1937 (Fridays at 10 p.m. ET), on the Mutual Network. Orson Welles adapted Victor Hugo's novel, directed the series and starred as Jean Valjean. The 22-year-old Welles developed the idea of telling stories with first-person narration on the series, which was his first job as a writer-director for radio. Les Misérables was one of Welles's earliest and finest achievements on radio, and marked the radio debut of the Mercury Theatre.

The production costarred Martin Gabel as Javert, Alice Frost as Fantine, and Virginia Nicholson, Welles's first wife, as the adult Cosette. The supporting cast included Ray Collins*, Agnes Moorehead*, Everett Sloane*, Betty Garde, Hiram Sherman, Frank Readick, Richard Widmark, Richard Wilson* and William Alland*.
* - Later appeared in Citizen Kane
