Cert: PG

CASQUE d’or came out in 1952 starring Simone Signoret, Serge Reggiani and Claude Dauphin. Set in Paris at the turn of the 19th Century, Casque D’Or follows the love affair between gangster’s moll, Marie (Simone Signoret, Room At The Top, Les Diaboliques) and reformed criminal Georges Manda (Serge Reggiani, Les Miserables, The Pianist).

When mob boss, Felix Leca (Claude Dauphin), takes an active interest in their affair, an underworld rivalry ensues leading to a treacherous and tragic end. Casque d’or is a classic, poetic tale of doomed romance based on the true-life Leca-Manda scandal.

Evoking the Belle Epoque period very realistically and with an unforgettable femme fatale performance from Signoret. Casque D’Or is considered to be Jacques Becker's masterpiece.

Extras: Featurette – ‘At the Heart of Emotions – the Legend of Golden Marie’
