Storyline

Delia Peletier has been paid to have a child for a wealthy man who wants an heir. She has the baby and turns it over to her "employer," but subsequently decides she wants the child back. She hires three men to kidnap the child. The quartet hides out in the house of Bernard Lapin, a nuclear scientist they believe to be away on business. Lapin returns, however, and becomes romantically involved with Delia. Meanwhile, her three kidnappers turn on her when they learn she actually wants the child and not the ransom money as she claimed.

Low budget obscurity
9 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

Messy mishmash of a man who somehow becomes involved with kidnappers with cloudy motives.

Everything in this thing is ill-defined and suggests heavy cutting before release. The whole subplot that involves Anne Baxter and Nehemiah Persoff makes no sense to the story and they vanish without an explanation or trace in the middle of the movie. Two name actors of their stature MUST have had more substantial parts than what is here for them to waste their time. Anne's blonde wig however is something to see.

As to the rest of the picture-most of the acting is amateurish at best, the photography poor and the direction practically nonexistent.

Never heard of this? No wonder.
