The Murderer Lives at Number 21 (L’Assassin habite au 21) is a 1942 French comedy thriller film by director Henri-Georges Clouzot. Adapted by Belgian writer Stanislas-André Steeman and Clouzot from Steeman’s 1939 book of the same title, it was Clouzot’s debut feature film. The film is about the hunt by detective Wens (Pierre Fresnay) for the murderer Monsieur Durand, who leaves calling cards and manages to be everywhere at once. With the aspiring actress Mila Malou (Suzy Delair), Wens follows clues to a seedy boarding house where he hopes to find the murderer.
In old Paris, inspector Wenceslas (referred to as “Wens” for short) Vorobeychikis assigned the case of a serial killer who leaves a calling card with the name ‘Monsieur Durand’ on his victims.
