I went by the Duvivier's name and was shocked by the childishly made movie, and then later checked and found the only brilliant piece of the movie - the maniac chasing the girl - was Duviviers, and to accommodate it, the rest of the movie was made. The difference in the quality of not only the filming, but also the plot can be too clearly made out. When you work with these master-class excerpts, probably you need some one professional to add the prologue and epilogue to make it a feature film. Universal wasn't that much in dump in 44s, (thanks to Durbin) couldn't they have made something good about it? Or simply they didn't bother (or may be didn't understand). Probably rather than watching the whole movie, it is better to fast forward to where Julien started, and stop where he did.
