Re: RARA-AVIS: Pierre Chenal and the Postman

You're right. It was a film from 1939, based on The Postman... The first film adaptation of this novel : LE DERNIER TOURNANT (= The last curve) by Pierre Chenal, with Michel Simon (the husband), under others. I never saw the film completely, only abstracts. It sets Cain's story in France.

Before WW2 Chenal made in France two or three other films that are also really noir.
