I had never heard of Jean Gabin before finding this film--what an incomparable actor! Screenplay by John O'Hara, the novelist and short story writer. Upon seeing that credit, I knew this would be worth a look. The director got the maximum mileage out of a very few sets, and got great performances out of very odd cast of actors. Among the second-billed, Thomas Mitchell plays against type as the bad guy; and Claude Rains is Claude Rains! The campaign hat he wears is a puzzling piece of business, but gives you something to think about. In fact, the whole movie gives you something to think about--what friendship is built upon, the free life of the gypsy versus the peasant life, the stories behind how people come together. In addition, the film creates a definite mood, which to my sensibility is unforgettable. The film did not fare well with audiences in 1942. Well, tastes change. Take a look, it will be worth it. Finally, google up the Wikipedia page for Jean Gabin. Not only was this guy a great actor, but he was a World War ll hero. He should be better known among film buffs and cinephiles.
Not a bad performance in the cast.Great love story,good snags in bad man,Gabin is a prince.Needs to be seen and often!

An interesting collection of actors helps keep this wonderful atmospheric picture afloat. However, one doesn't really see a lot of sexual chemistry between Gabin and Lupino. As good as the French actor is, it probably would've been better if Lupino had been paired with John Garfield. I think it would've been more commercial and much more a must-see classic today.
