The "Tixier" graffito that Reno Davis (Peppard) passes twice on the riverbank refers to Jean-Louis Tixier-Vignancour who contested the 1965 French presidential election for the far-right - which would have made him a popular choice for some of the movie's protagonists. See more »
What a flop. This show is a mega stinker. It starts off interesting enough with a murder victim floating in the river, and George Peppard getting knocked-out in a boxing match. Then, however, the film goes from interesting to stupid, dull, and boring. The plot isn't much and neither is the acting. The script tries to be witty, but there is nothing funny about it. The action scenes are without spark, and there aren't many sparks between Handsome George and his love interest Ingar Stevens.
There are a few minor bright spots; George Peppard looks great and it's hard not to like his performance. Miss Stevens looks beautiful and sexy, and there are some nice views of Paris and Italy. Aside from that, the House of Cards is nothing more then a House of Dull.
