Panique (1946)

In the suburbs of Paris, an old maid has just been murdered. Every body talks about that, except the misanthrope Mr Hire. The same evening, Alice, just getting out of jail, arrives and meets up with her lover Alfred again. They act as they do not know each other, for Alice went to jail to spare Alfred.

    One of my favourite films in the 1980’s is the excellent Monsieur Hire (1989) and thanks to Rarefilmm I can see the original version and compare Michel Blanc and Michel Simon playing Monsieur Hire. Well done Jon.
