The "mambo craze"of the late 1950s was hardly confined to the Western hemisphere, as proven by the French adventure flick Ces Dames Preferent le Mambo. In truth, there's not much singing or dancing in this Eddie Constantine vehicle. Instead, two-fisted Eddie gets involved with a treasure hunt in the Gulf of Mexico. Along the way, he smashes a narcotics ring, which wins him a reinstatement in the U.S. Navy. And of course, Constantine enjoys the attentions of a bevy of beautiful ladies (Veronique Zuber, Lise Bourdrin et. al.) wearing very little indeed.
