BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
November 29, 2014  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

This isn’t the Disney animated movie. This is 1946’s Le Belle et la Bete, Jean Cocteau’s moody, atmospheric, visually poetic exploration of the classic fable. It’s not intended as a children’s story, in this telling, but can be enjoyed as such by young viewers – though older ones will find a lot more in it about love, lust, honor and betrayal. Jean Marais stars as the hairy beast, and Belle is played by Josette Day, who wears costumes worthy of the most inventive Disney Imagineer.
