Edmond Gréville was French, but with British blood, and so for much of his career he made films in England as well as France—ranging from Mai Zetterling and Hugh Williams in The Romantic Age (truly a trifle) to the wistful teen exploitation of Beat Girl, or Wild for Kicks, to a remake of The Hands of Orlac.
Also known as a novelist and play-wright, Gréville has his supporters in France as a stylist director. But few people, so far. have seen enough of his pictures for a consensus to develop. Mademoiselle Docteur was an English version of the Pabst film, with von Stroheim and Dita Parlo. Le Pori du Désir is a good, moody Jean Gabin film, and L'Envers du Paradis was Stroheim again.
