Jacques Becker (1906-1960) is one of the great French filmmakers of the past whose name we (sometimes) know, not always realizing that he directed the famous films that appeared from time to time throughout post-war French film history. We can judge from the following:

1942 Dernier atout 
1943 Goupi Mains Rouges 
1945 Falbalas 
1947 Antoine et Antoinette 
1949 Rendez-vous de juillet 
1951 Édouard et Caroline 
1952 Casque d'Or 
1953 Rue de l'Estrapade 
1954 Ali Baba et les quarante voleurs 
1954 Touchez pas au grisbi 
1957 Les aventures d'Arsène Lupin 
1958 Montparnasse 19
1960 Le Trou 

“This is vintage Becker - worried, anguished, elegant, lyrical, nervous and in turmoil”.
François Truffaut
