“Every filmmaker from Francois Truffaut to Quentin Tarantino owes something of a debt to Becker’s black-and-white boldness.” (Janice Page, Boston Globe)

His girl wants to go out dancing, his partner wants to pull off one last dangerous heist, and his enemies want to grab his loot—but all aging gangster Jean Gabin wants to do is go home, put on his pajamas, and enjoy some pâté. Jacques Becker’s masterpiece is a delightful mix of Parisian hedonism and machine-gun shootouts.

MAY 14, 7:30: Q&A Joe Queenan, author of three books about film, and “Moving Targets” columnist for the Wall Street Journal
