Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Erich Von Stroheim is the principal attraction of the French melodrama On Ne Meurt pas Comme Ca. Von Stroheim is ideally cast as a tyrannical movie director, currently filming a murder mystery. While shooting a scene in which a character is poisoned, Von Stroheim complains that the actor's performance isn't realistic enough. Alas, his remonstrations fall upon deaf ears: the actor has really been poisoned! The rest of the film is a whodunit, with the "who" obvious to veteran filmgoers. The title translates as One Does Not Die That Way, which in context is grimly amusing.
