A lively biopic of French artist Toulouse Lautrec, directed by John Huston. Deformed in early age when his legs stop growing, dwarfish Parisian Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (Jose Ferrer, who also plays Lautrec's father) arrives in Paris during the 1890s and becomes obsessed with the dancers at the infamous Moulin Rouge club. Due to his deformities he is rejected by most women, so he seeks solace in cognac and women of disrepute and decides that he is better off becoming 'a painter of the gutter'. However, he goes on to become one of the great masters of Impressionism.
