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.

...Being pregnant gives you a great excuse to eat ice cream all day long if you want and one of my favourite finds has been Carte D'Or Vanilla flavour. Generally I find vanilla a bit boring but this tastes so smooth and has such flavourful vanilla beans in it that it's anything but boring!
Carte D'Or is a Unilever brand and according to the Unilever website Carte D'Or was first marketed in 1978...

...Cala D'or is a set of small sub-villages on the southern coast of Majorca (also known as Mallorca). We visited in April 2009 after booking a last minute deal. We booked through Thomas Cook and had 7 nights half board at the end of April for around £170 each (not including insurance).
When we booked this holiday we really didn't know what to expect, simply because quite frankly we had no idea...
Advantages: Makes a nice change from 'Ben and Jerry's' Disadvantages: Calorie Packed, Not cheap
...If I ever went on ?Mastermind? my specialist subject might well be Cherry Ice Cream (well its no weirder than the bloke who chose ?Cements Used In Hip Replacement? now is it?!)
I see myself as something of a cherry ice cream connoisseur and although Ben and Jerry?s ?Cherry Garcia? reigns supreme as the ice cream of choice in my household there is a young pretender to its throne?enter Carte D?Or...
