Kenneth Fearing the poet.

The Neglected Books blog features "Cracked Record Blues" by Kenneth Fearing—probably better known during his lifetime for his poetry, but he's also the author of The Big Clock (film w/Ray Milland, 1948; remade as Police Python 357, 1976, and No Way Out, 1987).

I really dislike NO WAY OUT, like THE BIG CLOCK a lot, and hadn't heard of the British film previously...cool.

Or, clearly, the French film!

I've never heard of Police Python 357 either and hadn't a clue about the Fearing connection. I'm surprised the trailer completely overlooks the two biggest French stars in the movie: Yves Montand and Simone Signoret, seen in bed in her nightgown.
