Thanks, Jon! Always welcome to see Gabin.
(And this has nothing to do with it, but since the request section is closed: There’s a 1974 comedy I’d like to see called “Thieves” with Charles Grodin and Marlo Thomas.. It’s based on a play. Issued on VHS decades ago, but never on DVD. If you can ever find it, I would love to see that one.) 🙂
Thank you for posting this film, it’s quite good. And it’s always nice to see the underrated Roland LeSaffre in an important role!
