“Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec crowded so much intense activity into his short and tempestuous life that he experienced more and accomplished more than most men can in twice as many years.  Moulin Rouge (the name of the most notorious of the Paris caberets) is the moving story of that life, the story of a great artist’s struggle to rise above his infirmities, told with understanding, sympathy and frankness.  Mr, La Mure presents a vivid and full-bodied picture of the the uninhibited Parisian life of the eighties and nineties, peopled by a host of characters, among whom appear such famous persons as Vincent Van Gogh, Claude Debussy, Cesar Franck, Edgar Degas, Georges Clemenceau, Oscar Wilde, Sarah Bernhardt, Emile Zola, Yvette Guilbert, Jane Avril, Anatole France – all of whom were Lautrec’s friends and part of his world.”
