The Singing Flower
Between À NOUS LA LIBERTÉ’s 1931 original release and 1950 reissue, René Clair cut two sequences, totaling about 10 minutes. From the scene where Emile lies in a field before being arrested for vagrancy, the director cut this image of a singing flower, finding it technically sloppy. It can still be seen in various pre-1950 nitrate and 16 mm prints.
