Janie Marese (with Michel Simon) in publicity still/video box cover for 'La Chienne'
Janie Marese (1908 - 1931)
La Chienne (The Bitch) (1931) [Lucienne 'Lulu' Pelletier]: Throat slit (off-screen) by Michel Simon in her apartment. The scene cuts away to the street outside after he grabs the knife; her body is shown afterwards when the camera pans up to the window. (The above publicity still used on the video box cover is a clearer image than actually appears in the film itself.) (See also Joan Bennett in the 1945 US remake Scarlet Street.)
