ARMY OF SHADOWS / BOB LE FLAMBEUR

Synopsis:

Sunday, July 11th @ 7:30 PM


Double Feature: ARMY OF SHADOWS, 1969, Rialto Pictures, 145 min. Dir. Jean-Pierre Melville. Lino Ventura stars as Gerbier, a French Resistance mastermind during World War II who, with the help of his fierce compatriots (including a tough-as-nails Simone Signoret), takes the fight against the German Occupation underground. But Gerbier comes to realize there is a dangerously hazy line between an admirable act and a despicable one.

BOB LE FLAMBEUR, 1955, Rialto Pictures, 97 min. Roger Duchesne stars as smooth-as-velvet crook Bob, who plans to retire after one last big score - if he can keep his hands off coquettish vixen Isabelle Corey and the even more dangerous allure of the gambling tables.
