Prolific, competent craftsman whose career lasted almost five decades; best remembered for the fine film noir precursor "Pepe le Moko" (1937) and the superb slice of poetic realism "Un Carnet de Bal" (1937). Duvivier made occasional American movies (e.g., the lush romantic period piece "Lydia" 1941, with Merle Oberon) as well as the British "Anna Karenina" (1948, with Vivien Leigh).
