The trailer for Henri-George Clouzot’s film “Le Corbeau” from 1943.
The film depicts a village where anonymous letters are sent denouncing various people, all signed by Le Corbeau or The Blackbird. The village is torn apart by suspicion. The film was so controversial it was banned in France for five years.
What’s this got to do with cycling? Well the Secret Pro column on Cycling Tips suggests a grand tour winner could be rousted for his bio passport. Who knows? But it’s got the Twitter village buzzing as people try to guess who it is.
We could see a big name busted or it could all turn out to be nothing. If nothing else, look out for the film as it’s a good one.
