First Known Appearance of Marcel Proust On Film

95 years after his death, Proust scholars think they’ve found the first known appearance of the literary legend on film, reported French weekly Le Point on Feb. 15.  In a 1904 clip of the wedding of Armand de Guiche and Elaine Greffulhe, members of the French nobility, a man in a bowler hat and light jacket rushes by the procession at second 36. According to experts, he is dressed just as the author of In Search of Lost Time was known to dress.
