gets a new look !
Monsieur Armand appears to be a respectable man and is the owner of a large house in Paris. He is in fact a gangster who bought the house with money from a hold-up a few years back. He keeps the rest of the money hidden in a room full of birds and rents out the other rooms to various tenants. Mademoiselle Lucie works in a cabaret. She loves money, which she obtains by playing the part of mistress to Louis the butcher. The money that Louis gives her soon finds its way to her other lover, an Italian who is too lazy to work. Meanwhile, Louis’s wife Antoinette has her eye on his money, which she needs to buy a guitar for Jojo, the young man who works for Louis and to whom she is obviously attracted. Finally, there is is Mademoiselle Pain, an old woman in a wheelchair who pretends she cannot walk and makes up stories about money she has hidden somewhere in the house. When Mlle Pain dies, the police are suspicious and pay more than one visit to M. Armand...
