Les Misérables by Gérard Depardieu( Visual )

In post-revolutionary France, Jean Valjean is paroled after serving 19 years in prison for stealing bread. Unable to find work as an ex-convict, he steals silver from a church. When he is caught and brought back, the bishop forgives him, instructing Valjean to use the silver to begin a new life. After breaking parole to do so, nine years later Valjean is a wealthy industrialist and mayor. This success comes at high price-- he is hunted by ruthless policeman Javert, his former prison guard. When Valjean comes across a woman being arrested by his old nemesis Javert, Valjean intervenes, risking discovery. When Valjean learns that the woman, Fantine, turned to prostitution after losing her position at his factory because she has a child, he befriends Fantine, even agreeing to care for her daughter, Cosette. The decision changes their lives forever

Although perhaps best-known as an Ivor Novello award-winning lyricist acclaimed, in particular, for his work in adapting Les Miserables into English, Herbert Kretzmer has also been a journalist of note, interviewing and profiling some of the biggest names of sport, politics, theatre and literature of the twentieth century for the Sunday Dispatch and the Daily Express. Snapshots brings together the very best of those pieces and offers an opportunity to rediscover intimate, eclectic and wide-ranging interviews with personalities such as Truman Capote, Matt Busby, Spike Milligan, Leni Riefenstahl, Peter Sellers, Sugar Ray Robinson, John Steinbeck, Marlene Dietrich, Henry Miller and many more. This extraordinary book is nothing short of a cultural cornucopia of the last century, offering unique insights into some of the most talented and charismatic names of the day. It is also a beguiling portrait of a master interviewer at his very best
