The dependable Kerwin Mathews stars as the Viscount of the title; he is also an insurance investigator, a fierce vigilante, an irresistible Casanova....he is the man who men want to be and women want to be with. He gets caught in the crossfire between two rival gangsters (Fernando Rey and Folco Lulli), and simultaneously endangers and saves a beautiful Parisian stripper (Sylvia Sorrente). Claude Chabrol regular Jean Yanne plays the Viscount's trusty sidekick. The film has some energetic, exciting fight scenes, but setting the climactic shootout in the middle of the night was a mistake; you can hardly tell who's shooting at who! Mostly a run-of-the-mill entry, but cast and locations keep it going. ** out of 4.
