I read Jamie S. Rich's DVD review of Six in Paris at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=35195 and...Rich confused the characters/actors in Gare du Nord. Barbet Schroeder is the stranger at the end, not the indifferent husband. Important for film lovers to see Schroeder in his fierce youth.

Thanks for reading the review, but I beg to differ. IMDB lists Schroeder as playing the husband, as does this biography page (http://www.filmreference.com/film/12/Barbet-Schroeder.html).
Even if the facial features of the young husband didn't make it totally obvious (at least to my eyes) that it's a young Schroeder, compare these images. One is of Gilles Quéant as the "premier client" in Godard's <i>Vivre Sa Vie</i>, and the other is the mysterious stranger of which you speak.
