More Movie Endlings

Email Print

Since we seem to find ourselves in such a mode, let me add another great movie ending. In the 1935 version of “Les Miserables” – the Frederic March and Charles Laughton version – I love the final scene in which Javert – finally experiencing the contrast between himself and Valjean – walks into the Seine and drowns. (That modern-day cops who had participated in evil behavior [e.g., the Waco butchery] had the integrity to do the same.)
