Boudu SauvÉ Des Eaux | 1932
The Jean Renoir original was filmed in Paris, and at Joinville, Marne. Studio filming was at the Eclair Studios, in Epinay.
Boudu makes his leap from the Pont des Arts, the wooden-planked pedestrian link between the Louvre on the Right Bank and the Institut de France on the Left.
The shop belonging to Édouard Lestingois (Charles Granval) , who saves him, is a real bookstore, and still in business. It’s Arenthon, 3 quai Malaquais on the Left Bank between the Pont des Arts and the Pont Neuf.
Boudu was lucky to have been saved, though. You can’t actually see the Pont des Arts from the shop’s windows.
