One of the first Litvak French movies ,"Cette Vieille Canaille" stars Harry Baur ,who was Julien Duvivier's favorite interpret at the time.He portrays an old wealthy man ,in love with a woman much younger than he is.His rival is an acrobat (Pierre Blanchar).Realizing his wife is only with him for the money,he urges her to go with his younger partner.

The best scenes are to be found at the end,particularly those in the theater where Blanchar and his pal perform somersaults .The operation is also a good moment,with a good use of superimposed pictures.

However Litvak's following films "Coeur de Lilas" "L'Equipage" and "Mayerling" were improvements on this one which has remained watchable for Baur's performance.
