This 30s double bill (with MOLLENARD) is one of my favorites out of all the ones we've put together. It shows what we know about how noir works its way into more traditional (melo)drama, and reminds us that it has many guises--both a "genre" and a "style," pushing past the conventions of drama to add a peculiar tension, anxiety, and--especially relevant to LE BONHEUR--irony.
