Jean Gabin as a Moroccan Spahi

While trawling Facebook this morning, I came across this fantastic stdio portrait photo of Jean Gabin as a Spahi NCO from the film "Gueule d'Amour".

This is not a film I have watched. It is translated as "Lady Killer", the director was Jean Grémillon and was made in 1937.

Jean Gabin plays the romantic lead, a Spahi NCO from the Moroccan Spahi Regiment, Mireille Balin is the woman that wrongs him, takes all his money, loses it in gambling and then leaves him. He leaves the Army to track her down. Cor...women eh...
