break the windows!

The break-the-windows waltz scene in Vincente Minnelli's Madame Bovary is one of cinema's all time greats (it gets going at 6:00 on the clip below, but really the entire ballroom sequence is a marvel).

Jennifer Jones (1919 - 2009)


  1. Wow amazing clip! Thanks for visiting today honey and commenting on my Home Alone post. I love that movie! I hope you have a fantastic Friday! Kori xoxo

  2. I feel horrible; I had no idea there even was a film version of Madame Bovary. This clip has only proven to me that I desperately need to rent it very, very soon!! :)

  3. Yes! It's really fun. Jennifer Jones, who just passed, is great in it. And it's beautifully produced to boot.
