Storyline

After a successful operation against drink smugglers, Customs and Excise get wind of a planned large illegal drug shipment. An agent is sent to Cannes to follow the brother and sister apparently involved, though he starts to get rather closer to the attractive young lady than planned. The trail leads via a fashion house to a freighter bound for the Pool of London, and the net starts to close in. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

This movie is kind of fun. If you imagined that working from Customs was boring and uninteresting, this will change your mind. Kenyon the Customs inspector travels to the South of France, consorts with beautiful women, stays in luxury motels, and generally lives a very high life.

It's not a bad story about a brother and sister drug smuggling ring that is busted open my modest men from Customs in tweed jackets and narrow ties.
