Every once in a while we like to pay tribute to a landmark film by encapsulating it in three animated GIFs.

The antiwar film, which starred Jean Gabin, is currently celebrating its 75th anniversary with a new digital restoration.
In the comments, let us know which three GIFs you would have selected, and nominate the film we should take on next.
