In the great René Clair’s last silent film (from 1928), a bruiser gets his comeuppance and a bashful barrister gets the girl. And what do you get, in addition to witnessing a spry, visually deft comedy? An archival print from the Cinémathèque Française and the world premiere of a new score from the homegrown talent at NYU’s Film Scoring Program.
