QUAI DES ORFÈVRES (1947) -
Henri-Georges Clouzot

Not as nerve-wracking as Wages of Fear. Not as overheated as Les Diaboliques. But a decent Clouzot policier with an inspector who looks like Floyd the Barber and has the laid-back snooping style of a Gallic Columbo. For reasons somewhat vague, he also has an adopted black child who sleeps a lot.
