Madeleine Robinson

  1. Edwige Feuillère, L’Idiot, France, 1946.    A suddenly revisedbudget saw Robinson replaced by Feuillère in realisateur George Lampin’s dullard take on Dostoievski.I wondered if he ever read L’Idiot.Being Russian-born was not enough to make him a Dostoievskian expert; he made a similarly dullard Crime and Punishment in 1956.
  2. Vivian Romance, L’Affaire des poisons, France, 1951.     Realisateur Henri Decoin passed on Claude Autant-Lara’s planned 1944 cast of Raimu and Robinson.
