Classical murder mystery
30 December 2016 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

We deal here with a good script although being really classical too. Adapted from an André Lay's novel, very close to the book, line to line, a sort of Boileau Narcejac style. Good performances too. André Lay was a sort of poor man's French James Hadley Chase, a very prolific writer who, in actual life, was a butcher in the morning, on street markets, and novelist on the afternoons. He wrote mostly this kind of schemes, in the line of POSTMAN ALWAYS RINGS TWICE, the wife, husband and lover triangle scheme, but also crime adventure stories, in the jungle, desert or mountain, involving adventurers, gangsters, runaway inmates. For instance, THEY CAME TO ROB LAS VEGAS was adapted from him. so, back to this film, you can watch it with great pleasure. The trade mark with André Lay was the twist and ironical endings. Always.
