MELODIE EN SOUS-SOL
ANY NUMBER CAN WIN
1962, Janus Films, 117 min, France/Italy, Dir: Henri Verneuil

Hotheaded punk Alain Delon hooks up with smooth career criminal Jean Gabin to knock over a gambling casino in Cannes with a cool billion francs in the vault. The tense scenes of Delon creeping like a cat through the casino’s ventilation system are almost as good as those in RIFIFI - and Gabin brings a beautifully weary finesse to his role as the mastermind of the heist.
