The "Seventh Commandment" is duly broken and mended in this French melodrama. Edwige Feuillare stars as a veteran con artist who uses her feminine wiles to bilk wealthy, susceptible old men. Inevitably, she outsmarts herself when she falls in love with one of her victims. In concert with her new beau, she turns the tables on her former partners in crime. More than one reviewer noted that Le Septieme Commandment was pretty old-fashioned stuff for a late-1950s film, but devotees of Edwige Feuillare were not so critical. The film made its American debut as part of a TV package of dubbed and re-edited foreign films.
