This is the film biography of French artist Henri Toulouse-Lautrec (Jose Ferrer). Because of his own physical growth deformity, he sought the outcasts of society and cafe frequenters where he painted their likenesses on canvas. The film catches Paris of that time in beautiful fashion. Then there's the terrific theme song. In addition to two Academy Awards, the film was nominated for five others, including Best Picture, Actor (Ferrer), Supporting Actress (Colette Marchand), and Director.
