Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Rive Gauche (Left Bank) is the French-language version of the 1931 Alexander Korda production Die Manner Um Lucie.When his sweetheart Lulu (Meg Lemmonier) marries a wealthy banker, young Montparnasse musician Robert (Henry Garet) heads to Rome to forget his troubles. Years later, he returns to Montparnasse to reclaim Lulu from the banker, who has proved a most unsuitable husband indeed. Young Fanny Clair steals the show as the banker's precocious daughter (and Robert's unexpected ally). The film is distinguished by its enticing picture-postcard views of Montparnasse and Rome, which proved as fascinating to Europeans as it did to Americans.
