From Henri-Georges Clouzot, the legendary director of The Wages of Fear, Diabolique, Le Corbeau and La Prisonnière, comes the Quai des Orfèvres, a film noir co-written by Clouzot and Jean Ferry (L’Enfer, Manon).

Come see the fabulous Jenny Lamour, the singer with stars in her eyes! Ignoring the protest of her covetous husband Maurice (Bernard Blier, Les Miserables), Jenny (Suzy Delair, Rocco and His Brothers) pursues a meeting with a lecherous movie financier. When Maurice attempts to crash the rendezvous, it’s murder! Enter Inspector Antoine (Louis Jouvet, Hotel du Nord), whose seasoned instincts lead him down a circuitous path of alibis and deceit.

Set within the vibrant dancehalls and historic crime corridors of 1940s Paris, Quai des Orfèvres was beautifully shot in stunning black-and-white by Armand Thirard (La Vérité).
