Gaumont Series Shown From New York to Montreal

WORKS included in ``Gaumont Presents: A Century of French Cinema'' cover the years from 1900, when the anonymously made ``Actualites: Place Concorde'' was filmed, to 1993, when Bertrand Blier directed ``Un deux trois soleil'' with Marcello Mastroianni and Anouk Grinberg in the leading roles.

All films on the program were chosen by Laurence Kardish of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and Edith Kramer of the Pacific Film Archive in Berkeley, Calif., in collaboration with Martine Offroy and Pierre Philippe of Gaumont in Neuilly, France. Gaumont has taken pains to restore every film as fully as possible to its original form, and to make new prints from the best available negative of each selection. It has also provided new English-language subtitles for nearly all sound films in the program. Its schedule is as follows:

* New York: Museum of Modern Art, Jan. 28-April 14

* Washington: Library of Congress, Feb. 7-March 4;

* National Gallery: Feb. 5-March 27;

* Maison Francaise: Feb. 1-March 30

* Boston: Museum of Fine Arts: March 24-May 29

* Rochester, N.Y.: George Eastman House, May 4-July 30

The show will then return to France for exhibition during Gaumont's centennial year.
