In this unexceptional whodunit, Michel Galabru appears in one of his earlier roles as the police inspector sent to investigate the murder of a young woman on the beach. The setting is the French Riviera where the widow Georgina (Martine Carol) presides over her family of two teen-age children and a dotty father-in-law. In addition, there is the visiting student from Germany who happens to be her secret lover, and their gardener, the father of the murder victim. The inspector has to ferret out the clues that will eventually lead him to the killer in this odd group of people -- though the audience is likely to be two steps ahead of him.
