Jules Dassin

1. – George Rigaud, Du rififi chez les femmes (US: Riff Raff Girls), France-Italy, 1959. B-movie relisateur Alex Joffé wanted his Marquis played  by the blacklisted Hollywood auteur (ex-Hitchcock assistant and sometime actor).  Of course, he did. Dassin  had put  the very word, rififi, into cinema language four years before with his classic heist movie, Du rifi chez les hommes – or plain  Rififi in the UK – in 1955.
