Emile Zola's "Le Reve," the next motion picture to be presented under the auspices of the French Talking Film Committee, will be shown on Thursday and Friday, January 26 and 27, at the Institute of Geographical Exploration, it was announced yesterday by Mrs. E. K. Rand, chairman of the committee. The picture, which is adapted from Zola's masterpiece, has been one of the most popular pictures in France during the past year.
In contrast to most of Zola's plays, "Le Reve," which was written in reply to critics who accused Zola of too much realism, is a clean, idyllic production.
As a curtain raiser before the presentation of "Le Reve," a short feature, "Mont St. Michel," will be shown, and Pierre Brodin will give a short explanatory talk in French. Tickets will be on sale at Robinson Hall Annex on Monday, January 23. Performances will be given both days at 2.15, 4.15, 6.45, and 8.45 o'clock, and tickets will be void five minutes after the beginning of each performance.
