Starring Jean Gabin

(1938) In an update of Zola’s classic, Simone Simon seeks help from trainman Gabin in bumping off her conniving husband — but her help’s a barely suppressed homicidal maniac himself. In French, with English subtitles. 35mm print imported from France especially for this series. Approx. 99 mins.

Reviews

“Superb performances from Gabin, Simon and Ledoux as the classic tragic love triangle.”
– Tom Milne, Time Out (London)

“Simply a story; a macabre, grim and oddly-fascinating story.”
– Frank S. Nugent, The New York Times
