Plot Synopsis:

With trademark hat and pipe, Albert Préjean (Princess Tam Tam) stars as the venerable Inspector Maigret in two first-rate Georges Simenon adaptations from the 1940s. PICPUS (1943): Whilst moving into her new Paris apartment, Madame Dumont discovers a dead body in her wardrobe. Soon more corpses pile up near the metro station Picpus and the eponymous street: a clairvoyant, a blind man, a doctor, a real estate agent. These people have certainly got something in common, but what can it be? Maigret is summoned to investigate in this thrilling whodunit from director Richard Pottier (Fanfare d’Amour). In CÉCILE IS DEAD! (1944) Santa Relli (Jour de Fête) plays a young woman named Cécile, who keeps coming to Quai des Orfèvres to see Inspector Maigret about disturbing events in her household. The esteemed detective and his colleagues are annoyed…until Cécile winds up dead. Maigret must crack the mystery in this stylish film noir from director Maurice Tourneur (Lorna Doone).
