Released in the United States as Dirty Money, the final film by Jean-Pierre Melville (1917–1973) features Alain Delon as a burned-out police detective, Richard Crenna as a nightclub owner and bank robber, and Catherine Deneuve as the icy woman they both love. The film showcases two trademark heists: a near-wordless bank job on a deserted, seaside street; and a nerve-racking, 20-minute drug snatch done via helicopter-to-train transfer—and back again.
