Movie Info

When an American serviceman goes AWOL, Colonel Dobbs (Charles Bronson) dons civilian attire to track down the missing man. Also missing is a large sum of money. The criminal follows a French woman named Mely (Marlene Jolbert) home and rapes her. Mely kills him with a shotgun and manages to dispose of his body. Dobbs questions the woman after discovering she was the last person to be seen with the derelict soldier. Mely has flashbacks that explain her aversion to law enforcement personnel. She caught her mother with another man as a child and her mother left home for good when she revealed the affair to her father. Bronson is typically low key in his performance as the army investigator Dobbs. Jean Gavin plays the local police inspector. Dobbs is eventually more concerned with recovering the money that capturing the rapist in this mystery drama.
