This French crime melodrama was released outside of Europe as Until the Last One. The film begins with a daring robbery, masterminded by a gang of clever thieves. Unfortunately, once the heist is a fait accompli, the crooks begin bickering with one another. Gradually, the crooks kill each other off until only two are left. The thrilling climax takes place in a gaudy travelling carnival. Enabling Jusqu'au Ernier to get good American bookings was the presence of leading lady Jeanne Moreau, here enticingly cast as a sideshow dancer.
