A Tale of Two Cities is a 1935 film adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic novel. Set during the French Revolution, Lucie Manette (Elizabeth Allan) is called to retrieve her father (Henry B. Walthall), who has just been released from the Bastille in Paris. On her way there, she meets Charles Darnay (Donald Woods), a French aristocrat who supports the revolutionaries. His uncle, the evil Marquis de St. Evemonde (Basil Rathbone) frames Charles for treason and he is arrested on his return to England. Charles turns to Sydney Carton (Ronald Colman) to defend him from the charge. The two bear a striking resemblance to one another, and they both fall in love with Lucie. Charles wins her hand and the couple enjoy several years together and have a daughter. But Charles is soon called back to France where he is arrested because of his aristocratic roots. Sydney must make a difficult decision to save his friend from the guillotine. Jack Conway directs the drama that was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Picture and Best Film Editing.moreless
