John Barrymore delivers a breathless depiction of France's rapscallion poet, thief, and vagabond: Francois Villon. To prove his mettle, he bounds over the snowy rooftops of Paris, scales a castle tower, and is hurled skyward by the royal catapult - but this is no mere stunt picture. Barrymore wielded a simmering sexuality endowing the film with an element of eroticism. The lavish spectacle boasts the set of William Cameron Menzies. Conrad Veidt, Henry Victor, and Angelo Rossitto costar.
