Synopsis by Hal Erickson

Made in Germany, La Foule Hurle is the French-language version of the 1932 Warner Bros. actioner The Crowd Roars. The plot remains the same, with a cocky young race-car driver juggling the affections of several women at once. When his kid brother decides to enter the racing game as well, the hero does everything he can to discourage the boy, leading to a deadly motorized showdown during the climactic Big Race. Jean Gabin stars in the leading role originally essayed by James Cagney. At least 75 percent of the footage in La Foule Hurle was lifted from The Crowd Roars, with no credit bestowed upon director Howard Hawks.
