Une Filled au Fouet translates to The Girl with the Whip, which alone was enough to pack 'em in back in 1952. French audiences were treated to a extra added attraction denied most American filmgoers: the title character, a lass named Pietro (Veronique Deschamps), at one point cavorts around in the nude. The daughter of a notorious smuggler, Pietro is raised as a boy by her adoptive mother. The "young man" is befriended by young mountain-climber Calixe (Michel Barbey), who is in for quite an education when he spots Pietro in her birthday suit. Though given top billing, Gallic film favorites Michel Simon and Gaby Morlays are both out of the proceedings by the fourth reel.
