Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The French Photo Finish doesn't get much play these days, but it used to be a Late Late Show perennial in the 1960s. Fernand Gravey and Jean Richard play a pair of con artists who've run out of suckers. They decide to try their luck at the track, where they hatch an intricate scheme involving the fixing of the race results. It's an almost perfect caper, but be prepared for a slyly ironic finale. Filmed in 1957, Photo Finish didn't make the American theatrical rounds until 1960.
