Mais je préfère plutôt que de supporter l'horreur des doublages qui sont fait aujourd'hui pour des films anciens!
En exemple le film diffusé par Arte : LE PORT DE L'ANGOISSE, doublé de nos jours en français : UN DESASTRE !!!!

Historically, the movie is a "bridge" between the gang-oriented mobster classics of the 1930s-40s (e.g. LITTLE CAESAR, PUBLIC ENEMY, HIGH SIERRA, WHITE HEAT) and THE GODFATHER. It is one of the earliest films to deal with "organized crime" on a national level, a topic that had been front-page news in the 1950s during Senator Kefauver's Congressional Crime Hearings.
Though "suggested" by a 1950s sensational expose' book by Jack Lait and Lee Mortimer, the screenplay by Clarence Greene and Russell Rouse appears to be a work of total fiction.
There is a lot to like in this movie, but it does have its problems.
On the plus side, it boasts a stellar cast of players, not the least of whom is Broderick Crawford, at his snappy-talking, "bull-in-a-china-shop" best. And yet, there are scenes in which he is allowed to exhibit a softer, more humorous side.
Richard Conte is also fine as Crawford's steely-eyed "hatchet man," the kind of role he had played many times, and Anne Bancroft is terrific as Crawford's self-destructive daughter who is ashamed that her father is a mobster.
Other effective players are Marilyn Maxwell, J. Carrol Naish and Mike Masurki.
The picture has several good action sequences involving contract killings, particularly the one in which Mazurki murders a Washington lobbyist that borrows a page from the Alfred Hitchcock suspense handbook.
I saw NEW YORK CONFIDENTIAL first run in 1955 (I was 14), and I recall being quite taken with this film that "exposed" organized crime.
Viewing it today, however, I still find it to be fairly entertaining, but it doesn't really hold up as well as some of its gangster predecessors (e.g. WHITE HEAT, HIGH SIERRA). That's because it IS an "expose'," and what was shocking back in 1955 is kind of old hat in 2010. This is, indeed, a film of its time.
The screenplay by Greene and Rouse is a bit "talky," primarily because the writers were trying to make the now well-worn point that much of the country, right up to and including the U.S. Congress, is controlled (or, at least, influenced) by organized crime.
The characters and their family problems are certainly interesting and dramatic, but they lack any real texture, such as you find in THE GODFATHER or even its less successful predecessor, THE BROTHERHOOD (1968), which starred Kirk Douglas.
Rouse directed the picture in a leisurely style, reminiscent of the television version of THE UNTOUCHABLES. Frankly, I think that somebody like Raoul Walsh or Phil Karlson would have infused the movie with a more needed energy.
Despite those minor reservations, I am thankful that VCI Entertainment has made this long missing film available and, as an aficionado of the gangster movie, I am delighted to have it in my collection.

When gangster Pete Androtto avenges himself on New York crime boss Charlie Lupo (Broderick Crawford), Lupo feels he must hit back. He calls in a sharp hit man from Chicago, the son of an old mentor from Prohibition days, Nick Magellan (Richard Conte). Nick is a professional, cool guy with nerves of steel. Lupo needs someone with brains and class in New York, so he offers Nick a permanent position. Lupo has bought several Congressmen and Washington lobbyists in order to push through a government loan that the syndicate needs for a billion-dollar oil deal. But a national crime commission has its sights set on the syndicate. Meanwhile, the cycle of revenge killings threatens to compromise Lupo and undermine the syndicate's best-laid plans.
"New York Confidential" posits a centralized crime syndicate of unscrupulous and fabulously wealthy Italian businessmen who run a national criminal network, including legitimate front businesses, where decisions are taken by vote. This is along the lines of what the Kefauver Committee proposed in 1950, though the reality was a lot less centralized and more messy. Nick Magellan is a trustworthy, self-sacrificing professional who accepts that his future lies with the syndicate because of who his father was. Lupo's daughter Kathy (Anne Bancroft), on the other hand, tries mightily to escape her family's legacy. Both characters are appealing; Lupo is compelling as well. The film's "noir" element is limited, however, because Nick never seriously considers resisting his fate.
The DVD (VCI 2010): Bonus features are a Photo Gallery, which is a slide show of production stills (2 min), a theatrical trailer (3 min), a split screen of "Before & After Restoration" (1 min) that allows us to see the results of the restoration work in a few scenes. And there is an audio commentary by film historian Alan K. Bode and film writer Kim Morgan. Bode does most of the talking. This commentary is mediocre because it focuses heavily on discussion of the cast, with very limited discussion of story, themes, and sets. No subtitles.

First, I love this film, mainly because of the good story, and wonderful characterizations of the lead actors, each in roles refreshingly different from their usual roles. Broderick Crawford and Richard Conte both manage to make their mafia boss / chilly assassin both frighful and likable. Anne Bancroft is wonderful, too, in a moving, deeply layered role, albeit with regrettably short screen time.
Thanks for reading
