A Tale of Two Cities

Ronald Colman plays a credible Sydney Carton — the disgraced and downcast British barrister whose love for Lucie Manette is his only joy — but it’s Basil Rathbone, as loathsome aristocrat Marquis St. Evrémonde, who steals the show. Based on Charles Dickens’s 1859 historical novel, A Tale of Two Cities received two Oscar nominations (including Best Picture of 1935) and was elected to the Library of Congress’s National Film Registry.

(Jack Conway, 1935, 35mm, 128 minutes)
