The Red Angel is the name of a fancy French nightclub where most of this film's action transpires. The story concentrates on three individuals. Berval plays Tonio Beretta, who after a life of crime has decided to reform and go into the nightclub business. Paul Meurisse plays Pierre Mavignac, an escaped criminal who won't let Beretta forget his past. Tilda Thamar plays sexy chanteuse Rita Tyndar, who ungratefully dumps her benefactor Beretta in favor of the more exciting (and more dangerous) Pierre. It is giving nothing away to note that at least one of these three characters will be shot full of holes by film's end.
