    I like this guy’s performence in “Port of Shadows”,sadness and misfortune seems always hover on the character which he plays

  2. Tony D’Ambra said,”Thanks to the mysterious Dark City Dame for a heads up on these screenings.”

    There no “mysterious” here, Tony D’Ambra!…especially, when it comes to me saying to you!… You’re very welcome!

    Btw, A very “nice” poster for the film “La Bete Humaine” (I collect film (movie) posters, lobbycards, and presskits. Hence, the reason I am always commenting on your posters on your website.) and a very “interesting” trailer for the 1969 20th Century Fox’s film “The Sicilian Clan” (Le Clan Des Siciliens).

    The DarkCityDame,
    Thanks, TD’A

  3. Yes DCD, Gabin’s face, like Bogart’s, says it all. Another French actor is Jean Servais, who starred in Dassin’s Rififi. This is an extract from a comment I posted on the MovieZeal.com review of Rififi:

    “George Orwell, who died at 46, wrote in his last diary entry that a man at the age of 50 has the face he deserves. An academic on the radio yesterday said Orwell was only partly right: a man at that age has the face he has willed. [The protagonist] Tony [played by Servais] has such a face – all the pain, betrayal, failure, and tarnished honour that follows [in the movie], is in his face.”

  4. Hi! Tony D’Ambra,
    I am so sorry about that “typo” in my previous comment…What I meant to say is,
    There is no “mystery” here! Tony D’Ambra, especially, when it comes to me saying to you!…You’re very welcome!

    Btw, I did read all the comments over there on the MZ message board during their month long tribute to films that are considered film noir.(Including the one that you “extracted” from your comment.)
