Olive Films is loading up January as they have now announced a January 22nd release date for Les Miserables (1958) on standard DVD & Blu-Ray.

This French version of the oft-filmed tome stars Jean Gabin and will be in French with optional English subtitles. Sysnopsis below.



An epic in the tradition of Doctor Zhivago and still considered as greatest film adaptation of Victor Hugo’s masterpiece, Les Miserables has been fully restored in HD.

Jean Valjean (Jean Gabin) is paroled after serving 19 year term in a hard labor prison for stealing some bread. After spending a night in a missionary, he tries to steal some silverware, but he is set straight by a kindly bishop (Fernand Ledoux) who protects his from the police and gives him a set of expensive candlesticks and makes him promise that he has to become a new man that day.

Nine years later, Valjean is now a wealthy industrialist and a mayor. He eventually befriends Fantine (Daniele Delorme), a single mother turned prostitute and risks everything when he comes to her aid, after she’s nearly arrested by police officer Javert (Bernard Blier) - Javert previously served as a guard at the prison Valjean was held in and becomes suspicious that the mayor and Valjean are the same person.

The all-star cast includes legendary character actors Bourvil and Serge Reggiani. Directed by Jean-Louis Le Chabois.
