The Schemer

A Feature film by Gilles Grangier

Produced by Orex Films

Release in France : 06/02/1957

    Synopsis

    A clever gang of thieves plots to remove a valuable Gaugin from a museum, create an imitation of the masterpiece, then pass off the phony as the genuine article. Yes, the villains are clever, but they never figure in the human element. Complicating this "perfect crime" is an imperfect murder and a few other unforeseen roadblocks to success.

    Reproduction Interdite was purchased for American consumption by a TV syndication firm specializing in providing "new" material for the Late Late Shows throughout the nation.
