Based on French serial killer Henri Desire Landru.

During World War I, Henri Landru (Charles Denner) supplements his income by luring middle-class women through newspaper ads, to a villa outside Paris where he seduces and kills them, burns their bodies, then helps himself to their bank accounts, keeping himself, his wife, his mistress, and his four children in the lifestyle to which they are accustomed.

Shot on location in Paris and Gambais, France.

8 x 10 inches. Very Good plus. Light creasing in margins, three with pinholes to corners, one with notable creasing in left margin.

Grant France.
