On the Rivera, he seeks refuge in a flophouse whose soup line is served by Jane Fonda and Lola Albright. The two women move him to a Gothic mansion owned by Albright, a millionaires with a Salvation Army complex. Fonda, her cousin, is hot for him and repeatedly attempts to seduce him while someone is attempting to poison him; and his murderous former associates have got wind of his whereabouts. Written by
Alain Delon has the perfect role as the ne'er do well young man, Lola Albright (sad & wonderful in LORD LOVE A DUCK) has commanding screen presence, and Jane Fonda is youthful beauty personified. Ms. Fonda was never more gorgeous than in this creepy little French Film. Those eyes. Nice job with the French language as well. Cool house. Interesting quirky musical score by Lalo Shifrin. Great B/W cinematography and strange "plot".
A 6 out of 10. Best performance = Jane Fonda. It's hard to describe what goes on in this one, but I couldn't get it out of my head for days. Nice atmosphere.
