La Kermesse Rouge (The Scarlet Bazaar) is dominated by the presence of Albert Prejean. The star is cast as a fin de siecle painter, who in his dotage recalls the amorous adventures of his past. Up-and-coming romantic lead Jean Tessier also plays an important role. Despite a tiny budget, director Paul Mesnier is able to provide an elaborate re-creation of Paris in Days Gone By. Curiously, La Kermesse Rouge is omitted from many of the published resumes of Albert Prejean's films, which tend to concentrate on his prolific contributions to the films of Rene Clair.
