THE GENTLEMAN IS A TRAMP...And you have never seen any one like him on the screen before. Or, perhaps you have...many, many years ago before the screen found its voice. For here is the story of a man whose misfortunes will make you smile, whose triumphs will make you laugh aloud. Come and enjoy the adventures and misadventures of the most unique hero in recent cinema. You have seen Jean Gabin many times through the years...as lover, as gangster, as detective. Now see him in the role that may achieve for him immortality, to judge from the international circle of critics who have seen "The Magnificent Tramp". To quote from the London Evening Standard, "Sharp, full flavored and very, very funny. You simply must see Gabin gate-crashing a select thedanset to do the Charleston. He was my prize."
A great Jean Gabin who holds this movie by himself
Jean Gabin's acting is wonderful. He reminds me his play with Belmondo in the great Un singe en hiver. The part with Bernard Blier is a real moment of fun. You have to see it. It is a real good pleasure.
