Boudu Saved from Drowning is a 1932 Comedy film released on 11th November; Jean Renoir directed the film which stars Michel Simon, Marcelle Hainia and Sévérine Lerczinska. It was later remade/rebooted as Down and Out in Beverly Hills in 1986.

Michel Simon gives one of the most memorable performances in screen history as Boudu, a Parisian tramp who takes a suicidal plunge into the Seine and is rescued by a well-to-do bookseller, Edouard Lestingois. The Lestingois family decides to take in the irrepressible bum, and he shows his gratitude by shaking the household to its foundations. With Boudu Saved from Drowning, legendary director Jean Renoir takes advantage of a host of Parisian locations and the anarchic charms of his lead actor to create an effervescent satire of the bourgeoisie.

If you started watching this film now, it would finish at approximately 4:22pm.
