SHOOT THE PIANO PLAYER (TIREZ SUR LE PIANISTE) (1960) B/W widescreen 92m dir: Francois Truffaut

w/Charles Aznavour, Marie Dubois, Nicole Berger, Michele Mercier, Albert Remy, Claude Mansard

Director Truffaut calls this, his second feature, "a pastiche of the Hollywood B film." This is an ironic story of a timid pianist (magnificently played by Aznavour) who has retreated from the concert stage to play in a second-rate cafe. Pictorially stunning, with canny use of the wide screen.
