Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
This is an uninspired murder mystery directed by Jacques-Gérard Cornu about the unfortunate and unnatural demise of a blackmailer. Gabrielle (Danielle Darrieux) is married to Georges (Mel Ferrer) but both she and her niece had been involved with the blackmailer who is now dead. Assigned to the murder case is a closed-mouthed police inspector whose investigations eventually start to shake down clues and bits of evidence, hinting that the identity of the killer will not be a mystery forever.
