Welcome Cravatte! https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Los_miser ... la_de_1973
In 1973 or 1974, Mexican channel "Canal 13" released a 20 episode live action television adaptation of Les Misérables, which is about 20 hours long. The official tapes of the broadcast were taped over when the television station was purchased. Thanks for the great video clips. I see different dates online, is the release date 1973 or 1974?
This is one of the few definitive adaptations of Les Misérables! I have seen/heard 19 major tv/radio/film adaptations (and 11 minor) of Les Misérables, and have seen about half so far of the 1964 Italy and 1971 Spain adaptations, which I am working my way through now. I am also familiar with many other major/minor adaptations which I haven't seen/heard yet.
The 2007 Japan adaptation is by far my favorite, and I consider it better than the 1934 France and 1964 Italy (watched half so far) and 1971 Spain (watched half so far) and 2001 UK Radio adaptations. Those five adaptations are top level for me. The 1935 USA is the other top favorite of mine, but mostly because I saw it first and love the Digne and Bishop Myriel scenes. Keep in mind that it's actually a weak adaptation of the book and not too "well made".
I have high hopes that once I watch/hear the 1925 France and 1967 UK and 1973/1974 Mexico and 1976 UK radio adaptations, that they will be as strong as my favorite 5-6 adaptations, but they are hard to find. If you are looking for a definitive Les Misérables adaptation, I think it would be one of the nine ones that I've mentioned so far (not counting the 1935 USA one though).
Cravatte, while I work my way through the 1964/1971 versions, I hope you enjoy working your way through the 2001/2007 adaptations. We have both seen the 1934 version.
