Boudu Saved from Drowning/Down and Out in Beverly Hills

Boudu Saved from Drowning is an excellent 1932 French film by Jean Renoir based on a novel of the same name. The novel was also the source for Paul Mazursky’s 1986 film Down and Out in Beverly Hills. They’re both about a middle-class family’s efforts to reform a down-and-out guy. I recommend both of these satires.
