Maggie: What was your favorite movie in your entire life?

Pauline: In my entire life? Well, there's a French movie that probably you've never heard of that I like best...

Maggie: And what was the French movie?

Pauline: "Menilmontant," a silent movie made in 1924 by Dmitri Kirsanov starring his beautiful Russian-born wife, Nadia Sibirskaya.
