United Kingdom released, PAL/Region 2 DVD: LANGUAGES: French ( Mono ), English ( Subtitles ), SPECIAL FEATURES: Black & White, Interactive Menu, Scene Access, Trailer(s), SYNOPSIS: The Paris demimonde of 1900 is the setting for Casque d'Or. Georges Manda (Serge Reggiani), an honest woodworker, falls in love with Marie (Simone Signoret), the "moll" of minor crook Roland (William Sabatier). Gangster boss Felix Leca (Claude Dauphin) orders Georges and Roland to fight a duel to the death over the girl, as prescribed by the "code of the apache." Felix then pins the blame for Roland's death on Georges' boyhood chum, Raymond (Raymond Bussières), knowing that the woodworker will nobly accept the blame; this will leave Marie alone, which is what the lustful Felix has wanted all along. When Georges learns he's been set up as a dupe, he escapes from the police and kills Felix. Casque D'Or was based on the true-life Leca-Manda scandal, wherein an otherwise decent man was guillotined for shooting down a gangster boss in broad daylight. Since the scandal was common knowledge in France, the downbeat ending of this film was hardly unexpected but still extremely moving. Completed in 1951, Casque D'Or was a failure on its first release but then built up an excellent word-of-mouth reputation abroad. The film was released in the U.S. in 1956 as Golden Marie.

...Serena, Cala Dor and Playa Cala Egos. We stayed in the resort Cala Gran which is in the middle of all of the Cala's and next to Cala D'or itself.
Cala Gran houses the largest beach in Cala D'or but please do bear in mind that in my opinion, it was a very small beach and went a lot further back than it did across! However, towards the end of April we found it never to be busy and usually to just be...

...There isn't really one particular genre of music that I like, I'm into all kinds of different music genres. My favourite artist of all time is definitely Michael Jackson. After all he is the King Of Pop! But I'm also a massive fan of the King Of R&B, Mr R Kelly.
