Lady Killer (Gueule d’amour)
Jean Gabin, Mireille Balin, René Lefèvre, Marguerite Deval, Jane Marken, André Carnège / French
This dark romantic drama tracks the decline of a great seducer
This dark romantic drama tracks the decline of a great seducer (Jean Gabin) once he falls in love himself. This tale of amour fou exerts a sultry spell, as radiant beauty Mireille Balin threatens to destroy her once-proud lover, a ladies’ man now entrapped in her web. Sleek, luminous filmmaking and dazzling star power make this romantic tragedy a masterpiece from the great era of pre-war French cinema.
