Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Provincial garage owner Jacques Dumesnil is the target of Rumeurs in this French psychological melodrama. When a prostitute is murdered, Dumesnil is immediately suspected of the crime. The police have no real case against him, but this means little in the court of public opinion. As a consequence of the pressure brought to bear against him, Dumesnil is moved to contemplate a second murder, with pretty Jany Holt as the intended victim.
