But only them.This is routine spy thriller with a vague story of stolen documents which Ventura must recover.He was a former gangster ,then he redeemed himself during WW2, among the Resistance,but the cops want him back again and they cook him up..Hardly believable for a former resistant!But he's got to obey and the plot will involve violence ,murder,child abduction,betrayals and the whole shebang . The female lead,Estella Blain,who passed away during the eighties,was Bardot style ,as a whole lot of actresses of the era.Frédéric Dard helped for the screenplay but it was not among his best work;so did Claude Sautet who would become a renowned director in the seventies.(les choses de la vie;Vincent,François,Paul et les autres)
