Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Marie (Marie Laforet) is a wealthy French female who receives a precious jewel from a secret service agent in this spy comedy. The agent is killed, and Dr. Kha (Akim Tamiroff) leads a group of international spies who are out to get Marie and the jewel. She is chased through several countries by the bad guys. Claude Chabrol makes use of his wry humor ala Alfred Hitchcock in the action scenes. Soviet agent Ivanov (Serge Reggiani) and American agent Johnson (Charles Denner) also have their eyes on the prize.
