    Synopsis

    Franck (Fernand Gravey) works for crude but likeable garage mechanic Nick Marino (Michel Simon). Whipped into an erotic frenzy by Nick's sexy young wife Cora (Corinne Luchaire), Frank cooks up a scheme with her to bump off Nick for the insurance money. Once the dirty deed is done, Frank and Cora are arrested for murder but manage to beat the rap. Fate, however, has other things in store for the conscience-stricken couple.
