ALPHAVILLE de Jean-Luc Godard - Official trailer - 1965
Alphaville was released in 1965, just like Hail! Mafia. See it if you can find it, it's great. Eddie Constantine is probably wearing the same trench-coat! Or double-duty top-coat, or whatever it is. There's nothing "B" about Alphaville. This movie is high-tone entertainment.
Thanks again to my friend David A. Ehrenstein for taking me to these French New Wave movies when they were new, and patiently explaining to me why they were so important.
