Paris: Cinedis, 1956. Collection of five original black-and-white photographs for the 1956 French film. Candid on-the-set moments showing actors Gil Vidal and Annie Girardot, and two images of Fresnay at a jukebox and with Girardot. French film title and actor names on the versos in holograph ink.

Fresnay plays the role of a teacher who surprises meddling students in a robbery attempt. The students, two played by Vidal and Girardot, aim to get revenge by framing the teacher for rape. Girardot had just begun her career, one that would land her roles playing strong-willed, independent women, relatable for women in similar situations, and she would become France's leading actress by the 1970s.
