Beware ,girlies ,....and viewers!
26 September 2013 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

After a brilliant period,which spawned some of the best works of the post -war era ("Dédée D'Anvers"," Une Si Jolie Petite Plage" ,the very noir " Manèges" ,arguably his towering achievement),Allégret fell quickly.After "Les Orgueilleux" ,his last valuable effort,all that he produced was mediocre at best ,abysmal at worst.

This one falls in the second category :good actors totally wasted (Robert Hossein,a prince of French film noir,and Italian beauty Antonella Lualdi) Based on a James Hadley chase 's novel ,it is a patchy inconsistent story of gangsters war ,hookers ,desperately trying to sound American ,but failing totally to convince.
