A novel by the prolific (to say the least) Georges Simenon was the source for Le Chien Jaune (The Yellow Dog). Set in the tiny port city of Concarneau, the story concerns a dishonest doctor who supports himself as a bootlegger. After double-crossing his partners, the doctor plans a quick escape, but is forced to commit murder in the process. Rosine Derean is literally a rose among the thorns in the role of a hotel servant girl. The detective in the case is played by Abel Tarride, the father of director Jean Tarride (nepotism was not merely confined to Hollywood!)
