Jean-Pierre Melville & Lino Ventura on the set of “Le Deuxième Souffle”, 1966
During the shooting of the scene in which Lino Ventura runs after the freight train that he tries to jump in, director Jean-Pierre Melville asked the train conductor to speed the train up, making it more difficult for Ventura to successfully make the jump, and Melville wanted to see the pain on his face as he tried harder to catch the train. When Ventura heard about this, long after the shooting, he was so angry about it that he had a huge row with Melville. The two never spoke again. They did make another film together, The Army of Shadows (1969), but only spoke to each other through assistants.
