Directed by Jean Renoir (France, 1936, 83 min.). Digital. French with English subtitles.

Jean Renoir's savage satire, heavily influenced by the French political spirit of the 1930s, concerns Amédée Lange (René Lefevre), a publishing house clerk who pens Western dime novels in his spare time. When his unscrupulous boss, Batala (Jules Berry), gives his debt collectors the slip by pretending to be dead, Lange and his co-workers take over the business themselves and thrive on the popularity of Lange's pulp stories until Batala returns to demand his share of the profits.
