L'homme a l'Hispano 1933
L'Homme a l'Hispano was the first of two sound films that the director Jean Epstein made for the independent production company Les Films Marcel Vandal et Charles Delac.

Virtually bankrupt, Georges Dewalter has made up his mind to leave France and move to Senegal in the hope of making his fortune. By chance he meets an old army friend, Deleone. The latter is glad to see his old comrade-in-arms, as he may be able to help him out of a tricky situation. Deleone has just bought a Hispano-Suiza for his mistress, a young cabaret dancer, with the intention of presenting it to her at Biarritz. As luck would have it, Deleone's wife is presently staying in Biarritz, so to avoid arousing her suspicion, Deleone asks Dewalter to take possession of the car for a few days and thereby create the impression that he is its rightful owner. With his departure for Africa delayed for a fortnight, Dewalter is more than willing to oblige his old friend.
Every one of course thinks the car Dewalter's and believes him to be very rich Lady Oswill, who meets him at the Deleones, also believes so. Not so her husband, however, for he had shared the same railway compartment with Dewalter from Paris, and in the course of their conversation learned the true state of Dewalter's fortune. Thus the stage is set for the inevitable drama...
