Robert Hossein serves as both director and star of The Game of Truth. The scene is a party thrown by a capricious novelist. During an elaborate word game, one of the guests, a late arrival, is murdered. Thus begins a round robin of accusations, recriminations and surprising revelations. Cunningly, the film's screenplay is designed in the form of a game, allowing the more adventurous viewers to vicariously play along. Game of Truth was originally released in France as La Jeu de la Verite; the film's American exposure was largely confined to Late Late Show screenings.
