Troubled indemnity
Gilles Grangier's forte ,in the fifties,was the thriller;this musical finds him on foreign territory .

Another vehicle for heartthrob singer Georges Guétary who sings less than usually ,but barks,mews,moos,chirps and imitates motors and other sound effects .And a trio of black singers (the Peter sisters ) and a violinist take to the stage instead of him.

The beginning of the plot bears some resemblance to Jules Verne's "Tribulations D'Un Chinois En Chine" (which Philippe De Broca transferred to the screen with Jean-Paul Belmondo in 1965):A suicidal South American took out huge life assurance and the insurance company frets over the future;one of their employees (Guétary) and an executive's niece (Gaby Sylvia) are sent to what's the insured person is up to.

In fact ,the plot is very derivative ;some good moments are to be found in the second part when Guétary's character ,who does not speak English at all, is led up the garden path by his colleague.
