In partnership with the Audiovisual Institute of Monaco, the Stamp Issuing Office is launching a new cinema series featuring the posters of films shot in Monaco.
The Story of a Cheat is a film by Sacha Guitry, which was released in 1936 and was adapted from his novel Mémoires d’un tricheur (Memoirs of a Cheat). The stamp depicts the Swedish poster for the film. The story concerns a man who writes his memoirs: from a very young age, the circumstances of his life have constantly pushed him, almost despite himself, towards dishonesty. He recounts for us the phenomenal successes and various failures of a professional cheat.
