Absent from the screen since 1944's Kismet, the incomparable Marlene Dietrich returned in the French romantic melodrama Martin Roumagnac. La Dietrich is cast opposite Jean Gabin, here playing a small-town contractor with an eye for the ladies. He is entranced by Dietrich, a woman who's "been around" and who intends to remain in circulation even after trapping Gabin in her web. When Gabin figures out he's been had, the results are unexpectedly tragic. Martin Roumagnac was a second-choice project for Dietrich and Gabin, who'd originally been offered the leads in Marcel Carne's "Les Portes de la Nuit" (also available on this site). In America, Martin Roumagnac was released as "The Room Upstairs".

Hmmm.... October 30, 2017
Reviewer: Patrick Hunter from Panorama City, CA United States  
The movie itself is no classic, but the two stars more than compensate.  It depresses one to think that Gabin and Dietrich walked away from Carne's LES PORTS DU LA NUIT in order to do this.  Oh well.  Fans should certainly check it out; the quality of sound and picture are first-rate
