It's always a pleasure to watch an Eddie Constantine movie, even if his movies are far from being masterpieces, but Eddie is so "relax". "Chien de Pique" was directed in 1960 by Yves Allégret, who directed three masterpieces of french film noir in the 40's. And "Chien de Pique" is somme kind of dramatic western which was one of the favorites of Eddie, he couldn't improvise as he did in his routine euro spy. Nicely shot in Camargue where Eddie has a ranch far away from his troubled times, his old pal Raymond Pellegrin appears, they haven't seen each other for ten years. And of course, there is a sad story about a beautiful chick (marvellously sexy Marie Versini). Lot of fights and shootings of course, and Eddie riding horse. "Chien de Paille" is a fine success in Eddie's B filmography, it definitely deserves a DVD edition. Eddie Constantine will "shoot" again in Camargue in "Hail Mafia" (and maybe "A Tout Casser", I don't really remember that bad movie).
