Francis the First (French: François Premier) is a 1937 French historical comedy film directed by Christian-Jaque and starring Fernandel, Mona Goya and Alexandre Rignault.[1] [2] It was shot at the Cité Elgé studios in Paris. The film's sets were designed by the art director Pierre Schild.


Honorin is the stage manager at a theatre featuring a play set during the reign of Francis I. When an actor is indisposed, he has to step into his role and suffers badly from stage fright. A colleague attempts to use hypnotism to calm his nerves, but instead he falls into a trance and transported several hundred years back in time. Knowing what is to come, he is able to predict the future, which soon leads to accusations of witchcraft.
