Beauty And The Beast: The Criterion Collection

Jean Cocteau's sublime adaptation of Mme. Leprince de Beaumont's fairy-tale masterpiece - in which the true love of a beautiful girl melts the heart of a feral but gentle beast - is a landmark feat of motion picture fantasy, with unforgettably romantic performances by Jean Marais and Josette Day. The spectacular visions of enchantment, desire, and death in Beauty And The Beast (La Belle Et La Bête) have become timeless icons of cinematic wonder.
