CRITIC'S PICK

Jean Gabin retrospective

September 04, 2008|Kenneth Turan

An intensely masculine and unflappably charismatic presence who was completely natural on screen, French actor Jean Gabin is a star for whom there is no exact American equivalent. Often cast as a doomed man, Gabin is the subject of a long-overdue retrospective tribute at the American Cinematheque's Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. The series begins Saturday night with a double bill of "The Sicilian Clan" and "Moontide," one of the two films Gabin made in Hollywood, followed on Sunday night by "House on the Waterfront" and the classic "Touchez Pas au Grisbi," directed by Jacques Becker and costarring Lino Ventura and Jeanne Moreau.
