Summary
The sublime adaptation by Jean Cocteau of Mme. Leprince de Beaumont's fairy-tale masterpiece, in which the true love of a beautiful girl melts the heart of a feral, but gentle beast, is a landmark feat of motion picture fantasy, with unforgettably romantic performances by Jean Marais and Josette Day. The spectacular visions of enchantment, desire, and death have become timeless icons of cinematic wonder
