  • Why are people trying to stop McGill finding a blind girl's jewels?

    Paris. An adopted young blind woman, Marcelle Robart is reading to her mother who is murdered by someone who comes into the room. McGill answers her ad, a reward for the return of her mother’s jewels. McGill has a police tail, Maurice, and Inspector Banard warns him not to work for her. Henri Thibaud offers McGill $1000 to leave Paris but he refuses and meets Marcelle in the park. From the porter Leon, a contact, he finds that the missing tiara which is not insured was broken up and sold in 1956 and that there are no Robart hierlooms. Two people set on McGill as he leaves a contact, then Maurice arrests him. Again, McGill is told by Banard to get out of the case, and he has told Marcelle about McGill’s past. Next a rifleman shoots at McGill who rushes back to his hotel, KO’s Maurice and escapes, going to Marcelle’s place, where Henri is. McGill has put two and two together. Maurice works for the drug squad. There is a concert each month for blind people where presents are handed out. Handling the presents, he tells Henri they contain drugs, part of a dope ring organised by the mother who was killed on Henri’s orders and he has taken over. Henri shoots at McGill with a gun in his cane but is killed by Banard. As he walks towards her, Marcelle recognises his footsteps and while McGill takes his gun, Maurice arrests him. McGill persuades Marcelle not to hide away from the world and it ends with her valet, Stephane escorting her to a concert. A typically great performance by Felicity Kendall as Marcelle, Marius Goring as Henri Thibaud, Derek Newark as Maurice, William Dexter as Inspector Banard, Inigo Jackson as Stephane, Michael Bates as Delacroix, Keith Marsh as Leon, Gillian Lind as Madame Robart.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The article above the personal ad that McGill shows is all but incomprehensible. There are two columns of text, and only one line seems to follow the preceding one in either column.

  • QUOTES (7)

    • McGill: How long you been blind?
      Marcelle: Since birth. But I'm not totally blind. I can see some light, some dark.
      McGill: Yeah, we all do that.

    • Henri: (after offering McGill a bribe) You are asking me to leave because you are angry, or because I am getting dangerously near your price.
      McGill: My price is $350 a week plus expenses, and I'm working this week.

    • McGill: Well, I'm indebted to you.
      Delacroix: Not if the bank honors your cheque, monsieur.

    • Banard: Do you know what I have in here?
      McGill: Your lunch?
      Banard: A confidential report concerning you.
      McGill: Confidentially, I don't care.

    • Henri: I am surprised, Mr. McGill. I did not know you were calling Mademoiselle Robart by her first name.
      McGill: Well, I move very fast, Henri, you've got to watch me.

    • Henri: You want a little discussion?
      McGill: Well, let's call it a medium-sized discussion, Henri.

    • Marcelle: It won't go on.
      McGill: Yes it will. Those concerts will go on. Birth and death and love. It will all go on. Whether you sit here or not.
      Marcelle: It's too black out there for me.
      McGill: Just look for what light there is. You're no safer here. You never have been and you never will be.
