Imprisoned Harry Lomart is a vicious, brute of a man and yet he is prepared to do his long jail term as he is confident that on his release his beautiful wife Pat will be waiting for him, but a visit from Pat brings him his worst nightmare.
The venomous and amoral wife of a wealthy architect tries, any way she can, to break up the blossoming romance between her husband and his new mistress; a good-natured young widow who holds a dark past.
Brian G. Hutton
I am not sure about the filming location of this movie. The story seems to be set in Frankfurt/Germany. The cars have German number plates with "F"s. On the other hand I think I recognized some Viennese streets. I am sure that the Philips building which can be seen @ 0:20:21 is the Viennese head quarters of Philips (Wien Favoriten, Triesterstrasse 64). One of the characters (the assistant of Richard Kowalski) pretends to speak a Viennese dialect, the way it is imagined by Germans ... very funny!
All in all the movie captures the atmosphere of the late 60s in Vienna quite nicely.
