Jean-Pierre Melville, who died in 1973, was born 100 years ago in Paris as Jean-Pierre Grumbach. This French film director, an Americanophile who loved Hollywood film noir and adopted the surname of the author of Moby Dick while working for the French Resistance during the Second World War, became famous after the war for his own crime films and for his movies about the Resistance.

We mark Melville’s centennial year with this short series consisting of six of his key works.
