Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Sacha Guitry starred in, and pseudonymously directed, the French romantic melodrama My Last Mistress. Guitry plays sculptor Francoise Bressoles, who falls madly in love with his model Catherine (portrayed by Guitry's real-life wive Genevieve). When his eyesight fails him, Bressoles begins to feel unworthy of Catherine, so he tells her to get out of his life. Love conquers all, but it takes ten reels to do so. Filmed in 1943 as Donne-moi Tes Yeux, My Last Mistress was not released in the U.S. until long after WWII had ended.
