For those who haven't seen them, Jean de Florette and Manon of the Spring are two parts of the same story, filmed together.

You don't have to watch French films, but if you do, these should be high in the queue.

These are fantastic must see films, IMHO. Practically Shakespearian. After the mention of Yves Montand, I had to bring them up.

I reviewed this back when dinosaurs roamed the earth: The Naked Spur (1953).

I'm fuzzy on the aspect ratios for that actor (no hints from me here) in his costume roles. How about Far From the Madding Crowd?
