Richard Pottier had a good sense of humor which showed in the best of his comedies :"Fanfare d'Amour" (remade as "some like it hot" ) "Caroline Chérie" and this "L'Aventure Commence Demain" which is much fun to watch.
Two crooks team up : a buck (Raymond Rouleau) ,the "brain" and a two-bit femme fatale ,a cross between Joan Crawford and Rita Hayworth ,complete with cigarette holder (Isa Miranda) ,the "charm".
They take a wealthy man as their target;they begin with a jewel then begin to work on a larger scale when they learn the greybeard owns a map which gives the site of of an elephant's graveyard (which means plenty of ivory ).Of course nothing happens as they expected .
Funny lines,very good acting and plenty of unexpected twists.
