#176 L'assassin menacé




Il est si calme or
whatever the
colloquial French is
for staying cool
under pressure. Though
strangely inappropriate;
for the cool criminals
of the time were
not assassins but
mainly jewel thieves, a
long line of, mostly
fictional, Fantomas &
Raffles through to (if
not, should be) Sean
Connery. This is
more the following
fin de siècle, maybe
that's what he's
waiting for, the iPod
to replace His Master's
Horn & Hannibal
to get down off
his elephant &
take his place
on center stage.
