This action comedy finds tough guy Ric (Eddie Constantine) coming to the rescue of Frankie (Johnny Halliday) when his club is invaded by a hippie motorcycle gang. The club serves no hard liquor, and the head gang member offers to buy Frankie's club and install a bar with stronger drinks. Frankie refuses and is beaten up, and the irrepressible Ric brings his two-fisted opinion to the fight that ensues. Frankie sings some songs and Ric (as usual in a Constantine film) is romantically amorous with some pretty French girls. Director John Berry went to court to keep his name off the credits after Jean Kerchbron re-edited the film without the director's consent. Neither Berry's name nor that of co-scripter Christian Plume were credited in the final release.
