“Le Salaire De La Peur” is known in America as “The Wages Of Fear.” It was remade by William Friedkin in 1977 as the movie “Sorcerer,” but this is the original French version, by director Henri-Georges Clouzot, and it’s a knockout. Set in South America, in the jungle where an oil company needs drivers to delivery nitroglycerine. They will pay 2,000 dollars a man. They decide on four men to take two trucks on the journey. It’s a death-defying quest, a suicide mission, and survival is almost out of the question. Rivalry between the trucks makes things even more suspenseful. Starring Yves Montand, Folco Lullli, Peter Van Eyck, and Charles Vanel as the four drivers. The last thirty minutes of “The Wages Of Fear” are among the most tense and thrilling in all of French cinema.
