Synopsis

Early French 'whodunnit' directed by Julien Duvivier and based on the classic 'Inspector Maigret' books by Georges Simenon. Gaston Jacquet plays Willy Ferriere, a man in financial straits: he's flat broke, and the upkeep of his mistress is costing him a small fortune. His life takes a turn for the worse when someone overhears him saying that he would give 100, 000 francs to get rid of his wealthy aunt (from whom he is set to inherit). At first, it looks as though things could go his way, but then he finds himself framed for murder... Harry Baur co-stars as Commissaire Maigret.
