Trivia

In the Italian post-synchronized version, the actors are dubbed by: Emilio Cigoli (Jean Gabin), Lidia Simoneschi (Arletty), Stefano Sibaldi (Roland Lessaffre) and Vinicio Sofia (Folco Lulli). Maria Pia Casilio who was still on location in France filming The Adultress (1953) was not able to get back to Rome in time for the post synchronization so it was Rosetta Calavetta who lent her voice for the role of the shy Maria Pozzi. Only Ave Ninchi ended up dubbing herself. See more »

Time had taken its toll.
21 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

There are interesting films in Carné's post Prévert career:"Thérèse Raquin" and "les tricheurs",to name but two.But this one is not among them.The screenplay,written by Carné and Jacques Sigurd -who was also Yves Allégret's best script writer- is rather weak and the dialogs seem to have been made" in the style of Jacques Prévert",but few lines are really potent.This is the clichéd story of a poor young man of whom a former boxer(Gabin) wants to make a champion.But his wife(Arletty) is not prepared to it and gets in the way.Besides ,the relationship between the poor lad -an orphan who always loses-and a posh girl (à la "Rose and Jack" in a movie whose name escapes my mind)never rings true.

15 years had passed since Carné directed Gabin and Arletty in his masterpiece "le jour se lève" and time had really taken its toll.Both seem jaded,particularly Arletty whose part is thankless .You should try Julien Duvivier's "sous le ciel de Paris" instead of this.That's really old hat!
