| a rare Steeman adaptation
"Le Mannequin Assassiné" is one of the last adaptation from the great Stanislas-André Steeman (three times adapted by Henri-George Clouzot). Steeman plays shortly a character of chemist. The Belgian actor Robert Lussac co-produced this movie and plays the commissioner Malaise, who looks very much alike Commissioner Maigret : in fact, Malaise existed before Maigret.

We are very far from the masterpieces directed by Clouzot, however, it is still entertaining thanks to the cast (Blanchette Brunoy, Daniel Gélin, Gabriello and the colorful Julien Carette).

The director Pierre De Hérain was the son-in-law of Maréchal Pétain. His directing career is from 1943 to 1949 with only five movies. "Le Mannequin Assassiné" is still very hard to find.

Nice cinematography by Marcel Grignon, who would enlighten in the 60's all the De Funès movies.
