Le Corbeau was one of the most controversial and successful films made during the German occupation of France. The film was produced by Henri-George Clouzot and released in 1943 by Continental Film, which was a film production company established by Joseph Goebbels and the Reichs Propaganda Ministry to support the making of French language films approved by German cenors for France. As Paris was the centre of the French film industry and was occupied by the Germans, many of the films were also shown in cinemas throughout France: including the unoccupied zone. The film is today considered a French classic; and is available from Criterion Films as a DVD with english subtitles.
