A classic epic of French film, Children of Paradise is the tragic tale of different men who fall for the same woman. This romantic saga takes place amid a theatrical community in 19th-century Paris, and is set against a backdrop of intrigue, duels and murder. The film, made in Nazi-occupied France during WWII, is seen as an allegory of that occupation.

I don't know when the title of this film got garbled. I recall it from a long time ago as "Children of the Paradise"; the word 'du' in the French title properly translates to 'of the'. It also makes sense given the subject of the film.
