Movie Info

Although this drama was based on the Sacha Guitry play +Deburau (which starred Lionel Atwill on Broadway), Warner Bros. changed it around and threw in a bit of +Camille for spice. Jean Gaspard Deburau (Monte Blue) is a clown for a Parisian pantomime theater. He falls in love with Marie Duplessis (Marie Prevost) and neglects his wife (Rose Dione). Eventually, Madame Deburau leaves him for his friend, Robillard (Willard Louis). But instead of finding solace with Marie, Deburau discovers that he was only a passing fancy to her. After she leaves him for Armand, he quits the stage. The only light in his life is his son, Charles (Pat Moore). Years pass and Marie finally comes back to him. Her health is gone and Armand has left her. She begs Deburau to return to the stage and, deliriously ill, marries him believing he is Armand. Deburau breaks down during his performance and Marie dies. But he dresses his son, now grown (and played by Pierre Gendron), in his clown outfit, and he successfully carries on in his father's footsteps.
