Probably one of Alain Delon’s finest early movies, Mélodie en sous-sol co stars with France’s Top Star of the Time, Jean Gabin in a gangster film with an interesting final twist. Filmed by the Great French Armenian director Henri Verneuil known as the Maestro of French Action movies of the 1960’s and 1970’s.

WARNING SPOILER: Melodie en sous-sol (scene finale/Color Version):
Interview of Alain Delon during the Shooting of Mélodie en sous Sol 1963
“Charles (Jean Gabin), a sixtyish career criminal fresh out of jail, rejects his wife’s plan for a quiet life of bourgeois respectability. He enlists a former cellmate, Francis (Alain Delon), to assist him in pulling off one final score, a carefully planned assault on the vault of a Cannes casino. Bad luck and Francis’s lack of professionalism set the caper maddeningly askew, and the stolen cash resurfaces in an unexpected manner.”
