Opening night of Classic French Cinema 1950-59!

This thriller about a murder and a disappearing corpse confirmed director Henri-Georges Clouzot’s reputation for delivering wicked entertainment that could out-Hitchcock the portly English master himself. A pair of schoolteachers (Simone Signoret and Vera Clouzot) conspire to off their headmaster, an abusive lout who is husband to one and paramour to the other. Their plan seems to have been successful…until the body vanishes.

May 2, 7:15: OPENING NIGHT with Film, Food, and Wine! Join us upstairs in the Jane Peck Gallery for a postscreening celebration featuring a French wine and food tasting menu. Wine generously donated by Wine Enthusiast. Tasting menu catered by Jean-Jacques’ Culinary Creations.
