The Films of Henri-Georges Clouzot. New 4K Restoration!
France | 1947 | Henri-Georges Clouzot
Clouzot’s vividly sleazy, masterful whodunit revolves around the murder of a lecherous film producer (Charles Dullin, “the dirtiest old man on celluloid,” according to film historian David Shipman). The main suspects are two married music hall performers—sexy Jenny Lamour (Suzy Delair), who had gone to visit the businessman, and her jealous husband (Bernard Blier), who once vowed to kill him. Louis Jouvet plays the shrewd, cynical inspector who unravels the case for the Quai des Orfèvres, France’s Scotland Yard. “A stunningly well-made entertainment…In this country it never got the audience it deserved.” –Pauline Kael. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 106 min.
