Event Details

Cartouche (1962) 115 min

Directed by Philippe De Broca

Claudia Cardinale, Jean-Paul Belmondo

 

A beauteous 18th century gypsy converts a dashing bandit into a Gallic Robin Hood in this action-comedy romp.

 

Who can resist a French costume drama with the gorgeous Claudia Cardinale as a gypsy wench and the ugly-handsome Jean Paul Belmondo as the bandit she “reforms” into a sword-fighting 18th century Robin Hood? Also known as Swords of Blood, this swashbuckler is at times comic, at times darkly romantic as only a European melodrama can be. A hit in France the year it was released, this movie is a perfect showcase not only for Cardinale’s beauty, but for the anti-hero qualities in Belmondo that made him an icon of the French New Wave.

Mechanics' Institute Library & Chess Room

The Mechanics' Institute Library and Chess Room is an historic membership library, cultural event center, and chess club located in the Financial District of San Francisco, California at 57 Post Street. Founded in 1854 to serve the vocational needs of out-of-work gold miners, the Institute today is a favorite of avid readers, writers, downtown employees, students, film lovers, chess players, and the 21st century nomadic worker who needs a quiet place to plug in a laptop and do research.
