Les Miserables is a dramatic film directed by Lewis Milestone based on the novel of the same name by Victor Hugo that centers on the ex-convict Jean Valjean (Michael Rennie), a man sent to jail for stealing bread during the height of a depression, as he tries to redeem himself from the wrongs he has done in his life. After a good portion of his life working the French galleys, Valjean manages to turn his life around with his well-worked for fortune and a young adopted daughter, Cosette (Debra Paget), whom he saved from the streets. When a revolution begins to build in Paris, Valjean's nemesis, an obsessive officer of the law Javert (Robert Newton), continues to hound Valjean to reveal his true identity, even going so far to torment Cosette and her love, Marius (Cameron Mitchell). Les Miserables is a deep look at the disparities of life when lifestyle and morals clash.
