Gueule d’amour (Lady Killer)
Dir. Jean Grémillon. 1937, 90 mins. 16mm. With Jean Gabin, Mireille Balin. Lucien, a legionnaire renowned for his way with women falls hard for Madeleine (Balin, reigniting the sexual tension with Gabin, her Pepe le Moko co-star), a woman who makes his working-class head spin with her sophistication and makes his heart beat faster by shunning his advances. Gabin, famed for his unflappable cool, gives a performance of naked desperation.
