Overview

Moulin Rouge is the story of 19th century French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, portrayed by José Ferrer. The film records his frustration over his physical handicap the growth in his legs was stunted by a childhood accident, his efforts to "lose" himself in Paris' bawdy Montmartre district, and his career as a painter, which brought him money only when he turned out advertising posters--but what posters! Toulouse-Lautrec's drinking and debauchery lead to his early death, which in the hands of director John Huston is staged brilliantly in the manner of a musical comedy finale. This is the film in which Zsa Zsa Gabor actually acts, in the role of demimonde entertainer Jane Avril. As a bonus, the film's musical score by Georges Auric managed to hit the Top Ten charts in the U.S. When this immensely successful film was released to television in the late '50s, Moulin Rouge proved to be one of the strongest-ever incentives to purchase a color TV set.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Mike Cummings
Acting in this 1954 John Huston film was a painful exercise for José Ferrer: He had to stand and walk on his knees to approximate the height of his character, the diminutive French artist Henri Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901). But any discomfort Ferrer felt served only to enhance his performance, for Toulouse-Lautrec led a tortured existence after suffering a childhood injury that stunted his growth and scarred his self-esteem. Ferrer gives a moving performance, playing his dwarfish character with pathetic desperation as he fails twice at love. His sensitive portrayal earned him an Oscar nomination and the acclaim of many critics. Oddly, it was the second time in four years that Ferrer played a Frenchman with a pronounced deformity and a miserable love life. In 1950, he portrayed the long-nosed fictional hero, Cyrano de Bergerac, winning an Oscar for that performance. The introspective gloom of Ferrer's Toulouse-Lautrec clashes markedly with the outward cheer and brilliant color that the painter captures on canvas, and with the merry Paris nightlife at the Moulin Rouge café that cinematographer Oswald Morris captures beautifully on film.
