Mother is still a Miss.
"Miss ,my mother" you read well : a spoiled girl,20 ,a wealthy man's daughter who buys a yacht as I buy a bike ,chooses to marry the first to come:it happens to be a fifty-something greybeard (Pierre Larquey);and she also gets a stepson,25 , a medical student (Pierre Brasseur),who pretends he hates her and has her followed by a private detective (hence the title).As my good friend Writer's Reign aptly wrote ,this could lead to Greek tragedy,a la Phaedra.But it belongs to Henry Decoin's first period ,when he was making light comedies before brilliantly turning film noir master .

This one suffers from a predictable screenplay ,not in a league with "Abus De Confiance " ,"Battements De Coeur" or "Retour A l'Aube",the latter displaying Decoin's first foray into Film Noir.However, Miss Darrieux ,as the capricious Virgin who refuses to consummate her wedding and Pierre Brasseur whose family's honor is at stake and thus studies mental derangement,make a nice pair.
