Moulin Rouge is a 1952 drama directed by John Huston. In Paris in the late 19th century, the night club Moulin Rouge is the only place to be for the intellectuals and libertarians. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (José Ferrer), a burgeoning artist, loves to spend time surrounded by the bright colors and vivid characters that inhabit the club, including singer Jane (Zsa Zsa Gabor) and dancers La Goulue (Katherine Kath) and Aicha (Muriel Smith). Henri is also friends with the owner, Maurice (Lee Montague), who makes use of Henri's artistic talent to create promotional materials for Moulin Rouge. Although talented, Henri also struggles with a physical disability. Because of a genetic condition and a childhood accident, Henri's legs never fully developed. The discrimination that Henri faced in his hometown was what drove him to his career as a Parisian artist. The misfits who frequent the club help Henri feel less lonely, and his artistic career starts to take off due to his sensual, vivid paintings. However, his tumultuous love affairs with Marie Charlet (Colette Marchand) and Myriamme (Suzanne Flon) mean that Henri may never be truly content.moreless
