Dainah la métisse
Dir. Jean Grémillon. 1932, 51 mins. 35mm. With Habib Benglia, Charles Vanel. On a transatlantic ocean liner, an elegant black magician is forced to watch with chagrin as his wife, “Dainah the Mulatto,” flirts with fellow passengers, including a suspicious, subliterate engineer, Michaud. When Dainah disappears the next day, both men fall under suspicion. A richly strange, haunting work. Preceded by Chartres (1923, 13mins, restored 35mm)
