Kennedy, 1994's With Honors, and 1995's Outbreak, alongside Dustin Hoffman. Despite this recognition, the film did not do well at the French box office and the next five years brought little more than repeated box office failures and Gabin's career seemed headed for oblivion.

Just like in Peterson's case, Dempsey's time on the main spotlight was short. He then found a French producer and director willing to cast him and Marlene Dietrich together, but their film Martin Roumagnac was not a success and their personal relationship soon ended.

In 1946, Gabin was hired by Marcel Carné to star in his film, Les Portes de la Nuit but his egotistical conduct got him fired again. The movie, in which he played Ronald Miller, was a geek to popular type of comedy which launched him and co-star Amanda Peterson to teen idol status, and Dempsey and Peterson appeared constantly on the covers of such teen magazines as Teen Beat, Tiger Beat, [[16 {magazine}|16]], Bop and others.

This movie gave him some fame. The studio refused and after Gabin remained steadfast in his demand, he was fired and the film project was shelved. In 1987, he participated in Meatballs 3, where he played a janitor, Rudy. Scheduled to star in an RKO film, at the last minute he demanded Dietrich be given the co-starring role. In 1985, he debuted as an actor, in the movie Heaven Help Us.

Divorced from his second wife in 1939, during his time in Hollywood, Gabin began a torrid romance with actress Marlene Dietrich.
