Pépé le Moko is a 1937 French movie directed by Julien Duvivier based on a 1931 novel by Henri La Barthe (under the pseudonym Roger Ashelbé), filmed in 1936. The film is considered a representative of poetic realism but is also often mentioned in connection with precursors of film noir. In the winding alleys of Algiers, crook Pépé finds shelter from the police. When he falls in love with the Parisian tourist Gaby, he finally feels homesick. For the world, he wants to accompany his beloved to France. This could cost him his freedom, perhaps even his life.

Because the French government found Pépé too "demoralizing", the drama did not find its way onto the screen until after World War II. Thus, the 1938 Hollywood remake Algiers preceded the original.

The following weapons were used in the film Pépé le Moko:

Ruby Pistol

Pépé le Moko (Jean Gabin), his gangsters like Pierrot (Gilbert Gil), Carlos (Gabriel Gabrio), Inès (Line Noro) and several policemen use Ruby Pistols. None of these pistols are actually fired; the slide does not move and the muzzle flash is generated by pyrotechnics.
