David and I are back with another episode of The Eclipse Viewer, the podcast dedicated to the Criterion Collection’s Eclipse Series of DVDs.

In this episode we discuss the work of Raymond Bernard, a pioneer of French cinema who has two films packaged in Eclipse Series 4: Raymond Bernard: Wooden Crosses (1932), a wonderfully realized World War I drama, and Les Misérables (1934), for my money the absolute best film adaptation of Victor Hugo’s novel.

Please find the podcast, the shownotes, and plenty of links over at CriterionCast here.
