La vérité sur Bébé Donge (The Truth of Our Marriage). 1952. France. Directed by Henri Decoin. Screenplay by Maurice Aubergé, based on a novel by Georges Simenon. With Danielle Darrieux, Jean Gabin, Jacques Castelot. 110 min.

As he lies dying in a hospital, from arsenic administered by his own wife (Darrieux), a provincial industrialist (Gabin) struggles to understand why she would have wanted to kill him. Scathing scenes from a marriage gone wrong, in a chilling film ripe for rediscovery by the neglected Henri Decoin.
