Jean-Pierre Melville

Casino Barrière de Deauville
Place du casino

14800 DEAUVILLE

In the summer of 1955, the casino heist inspired Jean-Pierre Melville to make his first crime film, "Bob le flambeur". He had written the script in 1950 and was waiting to shoot it. The last 15 minutes of the film are shot on the square and in the casino. The film became a cult and the very personal writing of Jean-Pierre Melville a reference universe for American directors of the 1990's.
