Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Paul Meurisse, who made an excellent impression on international audiences with such previous films as Macadam, heads the cast of L'Inspecteur Sergil. Meurisse is cast as the titular police inspector, hot on the trail of a mysterious murderer. As it turns out, the star has to carry virtually the entire picture on his own shoulders; the supporting cast is unusually inadequate, with one or two of the actors downright inept. Even undiscriminating film fans tended to chuckle at the film's shortcomings. For the record, L'Inspecteur Sergil was based on a novel by Jacques Rey.
