Tamango (1959) -- (Movie Clip) Two Men Commit The Same Offense Off West Africa, 1820, on board the illicit slave ship on which the entire picture takes place, Captain Reiker (Curt Jurgens) tries to break a nascent hunger strike, Alex Cressan as the title character not cooperating, and the conflicted doctor Corot (Jean Servais) commenting, early in Tamango, 1959.
That Man From Rio (1964) -- (Movie Clip) A Week's Leave Chomping baguettes and cheese, cloaks but no daggers, director Philippe De Broca introduces his leading man Jean-Paul Belmondo, the famous Musee de l’Homme in Paris, an unknown thief and Francoise Dorleac as Agnes, opening the international hit That Man From Rio, 1964.

That Man From Rio (1964) -- (Movie Clip) Pink With Small Green Stars Discouraged because his girl Agnes (Francois Dorleac), whom he rescued from kidnappers, seems more interested in a Samba in a Rio favela with their sidekick (Ubiracy de Oliveira), Frenchman Adrien (Jean-Paul Belmondo) comes around when she realizes he’s found a clue, in That Man From Rio, 1964.
White Mane (1952) -- (Movie Clip) White Mane Will Be Mine After the horse has discouraged the French herders, the new narration by actor Peter Strauss continues, and Folco (Alain Emery) makes his own capture attempt, in Albert Lamorisse's White Mane, 1952.
