An Italian Straw Hat

A farce by EUGENE LABICHE and MARC MICHEL with An Italian Straw Hat is one of the best known of all French farces. The plot is far too complex to be briefly explained; but, as usual, the unexpected can be expected, chaos and confusion reign, and disaster appears imminent up to the very last moment.

The Florentine Straw Hat

Musical farce in four acts Music by Nino Rota
Libretto by ERNESTA AND NINO ROTA (sung in Italian: records) A sparkling comic opera based on the classic farce by Eugene Labiche ; it concerns the frenzied efforts of Fadinard on the day of his marriage to procure an exact replica of a Florentine Straw Hat which his horse has eaten. The original hat belonged to a lady who went off into the woods with her lover and left the hat hanging on a bush.

Arena on Clair

Clair thought of himself as a screenwriter as well as a director. He put his stamp on French screen comedy in the 20s and 30s with such classics as The Italian Straw Hat , Sous les toits de Paris, Le Million and Le quatorze juillet, all of which he wrote or adapted himself. When the war came he went to Hollywood, but, like so many other Europeans used to a personal cinema, found their methods strange. He returned to France after the war, and Le silence est d'or, Les Belles de nuit and Porte des Lilas - about his beloved Paris -showed all his old command of sentimental irony.
Gavin Millar talks to colleagues and stars who worked with him: Leslie Caron , Gina Lollobrigida , Jean-Pierre Cassel , directors Claude Autant-Lara and Michel Boisrond.
With extracts from 40 years of his films.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.
