This outstanding melodrama stars Anton Walbrook as a famous Parisian jewel thief whose life is irrevocably changed when he becomes the guardian of a vulnerable young woman. Based on the hugely successful screenplay by Ivor Novello and Constance Collier – already adapted for a trio of 1920s screen hits starring Novello in the title role – The Rat is featured here in a brand-new transfer from the original film elements, in its as-exhibited theatrical aspect ratio.
Jean Boucheron, a.k.a. the Rat, is a brilliantly elusive felon and a celebrity among the demi-monde of Montmartre. Then, a fellow criminal who is about to be executed begs Jean to take care of Odile, the lovely young daughter he has thus far shielded from the more sordid aspects of life. Odile goes to live with Jean but can she remain safe when he plans to steal a millionaire's pearls?
