Port of Shadows (1938) Poster

Trivia

Some may notice that the Le Havre setting, while realistic, seems to have a slightly strange perspective. This is because the streets were constructed with a "false perspective" technique: the buildings were gradually scaled down in size the farther they go into the background; when shot with the proper camera lens, such a street will seem to stretch away from the camera up to four times longer than it actually does.

The film is supposed to be set in the French port of Le Havre, but the streets were actually all built on a sound stage.
