Catalog of French Scopitones (CA-Series)

CA-1 to CA-28

The following list is of French-made films that were made for CAMECA and appears to be complete, although other French films for which I have no catalog number appear in the list of "Other Scopitones (Series Number Unknown)." If you know the catalog number for any of those films, please let me know. The CAMECA films have a catalog number that begins with CA- in Europe, although prints of these films that were printed in the United States use a catalog number beginning with A-. As only some films from this list were printed in the United States, I have used the original CA- catalog number.

French prints of the CA-series films are usually on Kodak Safety stock, and although they still fade, they tend to have somewhat better color than the American A-series prints of the same titles, which are on Eastman stock and are now in various stages of turning red.

The director for each film is listed where available. The parenthetical titles are rough English translations of the French titles or, in some instances, the name of the English-language version of the song. Corrections are welcome!
