Serge Korber is not much of a director and I watched the movie just because Jacqueline Maillan was in it ;but it's a disappointment: a genius comic on stage ,she loses 90% of her unquestionable talent on the screen ;pairing her with cast against type (and remarkable actress too) Alida Valli is odd indeed ,but had the screenplay been more interesting ,and had Korber directed his thespians ,he could have made a fine gruesome comedy.
A gangster (Jean -Pierre Aumont in a five-minute half English half French part) dies (or is killed?) and he leaves lots of gold Lingots behind .As he married two different women,there are two widows (see above) and many people are interested in the hidden treasure .Dead bodies piles up at the speed of sound and that's it : it becomes aggravating and dull .The final song is stupid.So is the clue to the hiding- place of the gold.
