The first 50 attendees at each night of our June 1 & 2 double bill of cool French crime classics will get an awesome reproduction of the original 20 page Japanese pressbook for Any Number Can Win.
A gorgeous, one-of-a-kind 35mm archive print of Any Number Can Win was flown in from France and we’re pairing it with a stunning 20th Century Fox vault print of The Sicilian Clan. Both are rarely seen on the big screen and pack quite a wallop with an audience. This is one double feature you don’t want to miss.
ANY NUMBER CAN WIN (aka Mélodie en sous-sol) is one of the coolest capers in all of French cinema. Jean Gabin stars as a grizzled ex-con fresh out of the slammer who enlists his young former cellmate (Alain Delon) for one last score. But when they set their sights on a Cannes casino, not everything will go as planned. Henri Verneuil’s Golden Globe winning caper is slick and glamorously cool, featuring a hip jazz score and a stunning French Riviera backdrop.
Here’s a sneak peak:
