Simenon's novel was entitled "Maigret's First Case", although it was published twenty years after the first of the Inspector's adventures; it was a reminiscence of a different time, when the youthful Maigret had his first big chance to show his skills. How to adapt it for the demands of a weekly TV series? The solution was ingenious - it simply became "Lapointe's First Case" instead, and the significance of a period Delahaye sports car in the plot was simply explained by the owner being a collector of vintage automobiles. Neville Jason, as Lapointe, had a larger slice of screen-time than Rupert Davies as Maigret for this one episode only, and seized the chance offered without overdoing things.
