A summary of the movie, followed by the trailer:
“Fernand Naudin, an ex-mobster, is called by one of the former “brothers in arms” who has kept all his confidence in him. Nicknamed “the Mexican”, the latter is dying and wants to charge Fernand not only with his business but also to watch over his daughter Patricia. A very heavy legacy, because the business in question is rather shady – a gambling den, an underground distillery, and a brothel! – and coveted by the whole band who supported the Mexican (in particular Theo and the Volfoni brothers, Raoul and Paul); As for Patricia, she’s a foolish mind who thinks only of Antoine – an equally superficial young snob …
In the difficult task of keeping all these beautiful people in line, Fernand is fortunately helped by Maître Folage – the notary who administers the Mexican’s property – as well as by Pascal, his faithful bodyguard, and by Jean, his no less faithful butler who watches over Patricia’s escapades while learning English …”
