Former bank robber and acclaimed gangster Bob Montagné (Roger Duchesne) is living in a dreary Parisian apartment in the neighborhood of Montmartre, making a living through petty gambling. Bob decides to perform a final grand heist at the Deauville casino during Grand Prix weekend when the vaults will be full. His plan is going well until word gets out to Inspector Ledru of the Paris Police Department and it seems that all eyes are on Bob. A noir gangster film, Bob Le Flambeur influenced both the rise of French New Wave cinema and later heist films. Discussion with film historian Antoine de Baecque, moderated by Alison Levine (UVA)
