Touchez Pas Au Grisbi
Dir. Jacques Becker (1954). Long overdue for a Hollywood remake, Jacques Beckers humanistic evocation of a Montmartre criminal demi-monde provided a new model for the French crime film as well as Popular Front icon Jean Gabins post World War II comeback. Other attractions include a young, pony-tail switching Jeanne Moreau but Gabin is the resident object dart. The movie hits its stride in the last 40 minutes when this old school gangster finally goes to warold school style.
