Drole De Drame (Bizarre, Bizarre) (Drole De Drame, Ou L’Etrange Aventure Du Docteur Molyneux)


(out of 5)

Truly bizarre adaptation of English murder mystery novel His First Offence by J. Storer Clouston, about a serial killer in 19th-century London and the insanity caused by the publicity surrounding his imminent capture. Marcel Carne directed this little piece of fluff, one that doesn’t rank up there with his highly beloved Children Of Paradise but is a curious piece of French film history worth noting all the same.
