Les misérables (1934)

Director: Raymond Bernard
Cinematography:Jules Kruger
Production Design: Lucien Carré / Jean Perrier

I cannot be sure if he executed the paintings himself or if he just designed the trick shots and had some scenic artist for the paintings.

That ceiling looks like a foreground miniature but it could be also a glass shot.


Miniatures were used very often on French films during those early years.
