| Cross, Double Cross, And Cross Again
Pierre Varneck and Roger Hanin own a money-losing night club. In walks Don Ziegler, who wants his money - he had given it to them to smuggle out of Indo-China. They try to sell the club back, but the real owner has a proposition: take part in a robbery from a gold smuggler, and they'll split the loot.

Michel Deville's first feature is a taut crime drama, full of double-crosses, pretty girls, flashy cars and an air of desperation that never lets up for the two leads. With a lively jazz score by Raymond Bernard, some nice camerawork by Claude Lecomte, the seventh minutes that this movie takes flashes by. Hazel Scott shows up as a piano-playing chanteuse and La Bardot's sister Mijanou is the golf-playing girlfriend of Haneck, named 'Brigitte'... and the daughter of the man they rob. Even the author of the policier this is based on, Albert Simonin has a short role.
