Storyline

Frank, a hobo, ends up in a garage-truck stop in the middle of nowhere. Nick Marino, its naive owner, is a good man married to Cora, a young and sexy bitch, half his age. Frank, although not a fan of hard work, accepts Nick's offer to work for him. Of course, it is not for Nick's sake that the young man becomes his attendant, but for the love of Cora under whose spell he has fallen at once. It does not take long before Cora, who is disgusted by her husband, asks her lover to help her get rid of him. Frank is reluctant at first but... Written by Guy Bellinger

The hubby steals the show.
9 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

The first of the four versions of "postman always rings twice" is not uninteresting.Its main asset is Michel Simon's presence:he was one of the greatest French actors ever and he easily outshines Fernand Gravey and Corinne Luchaire as the lovers and all the other actors who would take on the hubby's part.It does not cut,however,Visconti's version and even Tay Garnett's in my humble opinion;on the other hand ,I've always thought that the Rafelson Nicholsonesque version was overblown and the weakest of the lot.

Pierre Chenal would never equal this success:the end of his career never finds back the noir atmosphere of his pre-war movies."La foire aux Chimères" ,his chef d'oeuvre, was a different matter.
