Based on a script by novelist Françoise Sagan, the film may play fast and loose with facts and details but it makes for an interesting, if not always specifically accurate, watch.Landru is played by Charles Denner and is portrayed in the film as an upper class, middle-aged bourgeoisie family man able to navigate social circles in Paris well enough. With the First World War wreaking havoc across not just France but almost the entirety of Europe, he soon finds himself falling on hard times. Needing to come up with some income he comes up with a truly diabolical plan in which he ...<a href="https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/review/74947">Read the entire review &raquo;</a></td></tr><tr><td valign="top"><a href="https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/review/74946"><img src="http://images.dvdtalk.com/covers/ts1628610746.jpg" border="0" style="margin-right:5px;margin-bottom:5px" align="left" /></a><a href="https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/review/74946"><strong>Blue Panther (aka Marie-Chantal vs. Doctor Ka) (Blu-ray)</strong></a><br /><span style="font-size:11px">by Ian Jane</span><div style="width:100%; height:1px; background: #fff"></div>The Movie:Claude Charbol's 1965 film, Blue Panther, also known as Marie-Chantal vs. Doctor Ka, takes place on a train heading through the mountains of Europe into Switzerland.
