The Five Accursed Gentlemen / Moon Over Morocco

The Five Accursed Gentlemen / Moon Over Morocco

A Feature film by Julien Duvivier

Produced by Le Film d'Art (Vandal et Delac)

Release in France : 07/06/1932

    Synopsis

    Les Cinq Gentlemen Maudits (The Five Accursed Gentlemen), Julien Duvivier's second talkie, was also the second in a series of five box-office hits for the prolific director. The scene is Morocco, where a local soothsayer predicts the death of five men. After three of the "cursed" quintet die under mysterious circumstances, the focus shifts on the fourth, millionaire Harry Baur. It is up to wealthy young Rene Lefevbre, the boyfriend of Baur's niece Rosine Derean, to save his future uncle-in-law from harm -- and to sift out the truth behind the three previous deaths. Like many French films of the era, Les Cinq Gentlemen Maudits is rife with "plugs" for various advertisers, notably a well-known Parisian interior decorating firm.
