La Nuit Du Carrefour / Night at the Crossroads

$25,204.99

About

Original French film poster for the La Nuit du Carrefour / Night at the Crossroads, 1932. the bloody letters dominating this astounding French poster, together with the ruthless sweep of search lights, prepare the viewer for a story of murder, suspense and car chases. What it does not prepare the audience for is the twisted romance blooming between a charming criminal and the detective assigned to arrest her, a romance which threatens to undermine all conventional notions of good and evil. Released a year after the novel it was inspired by, this film is one of the first cinematic adaptations of the adventures of the fictional French detective Jules Maigret, from the stories by Georges Simenon. Director Jean Renoir and starring Pierre Renoir, Georges Térof and Winna Winifried the film has been criticised for his treatment of the story, as some of the plot sequences seemed to be missing. However, this very feature may have contributed to the film’s charm and prompted Jean-Luc Godard to describe it as ‘Renoir’s most mysterious film’. The art work on this poster is by Jean Bertrand and is considered to be one of the greatest posters from the 1930's. This poster is exceptionally rare French poster, that hardly ever surfaces. This poster is conservation linen-backed and would be shipped rolled in a strong tube by Federal Express.
