This loving farce from FRANÃOIS TRUFFAUT (Jules and Jim) about the joys and turbulence of moviemaking is one of his most beloved films. Truffaut himself appears as the harried director of a frivolous melodrama, the shooting of which is plagued by the whims of a neurotic actor (The 400 Blows' JEAN-PIERRE LÃAUD); an aging but still forceful Italian diva (Juliet of the Spirits' VALENTINA CORTESE); and a British ingÃ©nue haunted by personal scandal (Bullitt's JACQUELINE BISSET). An irreverent paean to the prosaic craft of cinema as well as a delightful human comedy about the pitfalls of love and sex, Day for Night is buoyed by robust performances and a sparkling score by the legendary GEORGES DELERUE (Contempt).

This feelgood musical drama tells the story of composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's early career as a Russian Naval Academy cadet and an imaginary meeting with an exotic dancer who might have inspired one of his great works. It's 1865, and the young Rimsky-Korsakov (Jean-Pierre Aumont) is a sailor on a two-year world tour with the Russian Navy. When the ship docks in Tangiers, his search for a piano on which to play his latest work brings him into the fold of a family of down-at-heel Spanish aristocrats. The daughter Cara (Yvonne de Carlo) works secretly as a veiled dancer with the stage name Scheherazade in order to support her mother Madame de Talavera (Eve Arden)'s spendthrift habits.

As the week's furlough flies by, young Nikolai's musical and amorous aspirations come under threat from Brian Donlevy's severe Captain Vladimir Gregorovitch and dashing shipmate Prince Mischetsky (Phillip Reed) but a harmonious ending is on the horizon. Written and directed by Walter Reisch (Ninotchka, Gaslight, Niagara), the film also stars Charles Kullmann, a leading tenor with the Metropolitan Opera, who is smuggled aboard as the ship's doctor to perform many of Rimsky-Korsakov's enduring melodies.
