Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Roger Pigaut plays Sylvain, a tobacco smuggler working the border between France and Belgium. Sylvain lives with sexy bar hostess Germaine, played by the formidable Ginette Leclerc. Trouble begins brewing when a customs inspector, bound and determined to catch Sylvain in the act, falls in love with Germaine. It looks bad for Sylvain, but at least he finds spiritual redemption in the arms of virginal young Pa Scaline (Claire Olivia). Like many French films of the early 1950s, La Maison dans la Dune was in for a rough time when it fell into the hands of the American censors.
