To save her fa­ther, a French­woman (Josette Day) of­fers her life to a no­ble­man (Jean Marais) un­der a beastly curse in Jean Cocteau’s breath­tak­ing 1946 adap­ta­tion of the fa­mous fairy tale. With­out ben­e­fit of com­put­er­ized spe­cial ef­fects, Cocteau evokes a mag­i­cal world through sheer artistry. No won­der this is con­sid­ered one of the best fan­tasy films of all time and heav­ily in­spired Dis­ney’s hit 1991 an­i­mated ver­sion of the tale.
