Arliss Alert! VOLTAIRE on TCM Thurs July 12 4:45 PM EDT

PostMon Jul 09, 2018 8:41 am

Arliss Alert! TCM (US) is showing VOLTAIRE (1933) this Thursday, July 12 at 4:45 PM eastern daylight time.
Mr. A’s hit biopic is part of the channel’s celebration leading up to Bastille Day on the 14th. VOLTAIRE had been a story that Mr. A had wanted to play since 1919 but was never able to find sufficient financial support for it. Perhaps producers feared that the subject was too “high brow” for movie-goers. But to Warner Bros.’s credit, the studio decided to move forward with project. They need not have worried – Mr. A turned in a canny and hilarious performance as the French philosopher and wit – proving again that historical biographies could be very humorous and very profitable, at least in Mr. A’s hands. Don't miss it!
