This short documentary about the Marseille harbor was produced by filmmaker Marcel Pagnol in 1935, possibly to accompany the release of CÉSAR. An example of the prewar French genre known as “documentaire romance,” the film features several of Pagnol’s regular collaborators. This rare footage is presented here from the best available source.
