This is the kind of movie which was obviously unworthy of the talented Maurice Ronet ("Plein Soleil" /(purple noon) or "Le Feu Follet" /(the fire within).And I'm sure that for the beautiful Virna Lisi ,who would be twenty years later the best Catherine de Medicis that ever was in a movie ("La Reine Margot") it's an unpleasant memory that is hard to forget.
