The creaking wheels of the phantom carriage ridden by Death himself – and driven for a year by the hapless man who dies at the stroke of midnight on New Year’s Eve – provide the sinister backdrop for this rare French film. Pierre Fresnay is remarkable as hard-drinking tough guy, David, whose buddy Georges (the equally remarkable Louis Jouvet) haunts his nights as the ghostly carriage driver.

A highly successful remake of Swedish master Victor Sjöström’s silent classic (1920) of the same name.
