Toi le venin - Blonde in a White Car

Jean Gabin as a slick gangster hoping to retire on his last job, but complications in the underworld get in the way. With Lino Ventura & a young Jeanne Moreau. The film that started the "heist film mystique" & still holds sway over how French noir is perceived.

(1954) 94 mins. Dir. Jacques Becker. Screenplay, Jacques Becker and Maurice Griffe, from the novel by Albert Simonin. Photographed by Pierre Montazel. Music by Jean Wiener. With Jean Gabin, Jeanne Moreau, René Dary, Lino Ventura, Paul Frankeur, Dora Doll, Daniel Cauchy.

SUNDAY EVENING, OCTOBER 24

PEOPLE OF NO IMPORTANCE / DES GENS SANS IMPORTANCE  8:30

Poignant, downbeat story of a trucker (Gabin) and a young waitress (Françoise Arnoul) who find love until darker realities set in. Masterfully intimate filmmaking from a director known more for his rowdy action films. "Criminally unknown film with Gabin at his best"—Jeff Stafford, Cinema Sojourns

(1956) 101 min. Dir. Henri Verneuil. Screenplay by Henri Verneuil. Photography by Louis Page. Music by Joseph Kosma. With Jean Gabin, Françoise Arnoul, Pierre Mondy, Yvette Etiévant, Dany Carrel, Nane Germon.
