"Algiers" (1938)

Probably Charles Boyer's most famous role, the cad of the Casbah, Pepe LeMoko...a ne'er do well jewel thief longing for a life back in his beloved Paris and lusting after the incomparably beautiful Hedy Lamarr in her Hollywood debut as a tycoon's kept mistress. Cops, stoolies, urchins, exotic women and even a snappy song from Boyer, all among the rabbit warren of Algerian steets and alleys. Great fun.
