Pursued by the police, a man climbs the Eiffel Tower (not a good escape route, since the only way is up), & when he finally is done climbing & has nowhere else to go, he hurls himself down to his death (told you). Faced with the dead man, the inspector (Humphrey Bogart double Robert Sacchi) recollects the events that led to this ...

Antoine (Peter Martell) was a small time crook, madly in love with Francine (Barbara Bouchet), but Francine was a whore, working in Madame Colette's (Anita Ekberg) brothel - much to his dismay, which he expresses in occasionally beating her up. & after he had visited her once (& beaten her up), she is found dead by writer Randall (Renato Romano), a regular at Madame Colette's house. The inspector soon comes to the conclusion that Antoine is the only logical suspect, has him arrested, tried & sentenced to death by the guilottine, even if during the whole trial Antoine insists he's innocent, & after the conviction, he promises to come back from the dead & have his revenge ... but even before his execution he manages to escape ... but meets a fatal accident that leaves him beheaded (ironically quite according to his sentence).

... but by now (a little late), the inspector has serious doubts about Antoine's guilt, & he continues to investigate (even if the case is closed). He soon has quite an array of suspects: Madame Coleete of course, sleazy writer Randall, Antoine's ex wife & nightclub singer Marianne (Rosalba Neri), her current lover, bar owner Pepi (Rolf Eden), even the coroner professor Waldemar (Howard Vernon), who shows an unhealthy interest in Antoine's head & even gets hold of it, Waldemar's assistant Roger, who shows a healthy interest into the professor's daughter Leonora (Evelyne Kraft) but is just too cleancut to be innocent, elusive whore Alice, ...

But soon the inspector's suspects die like flies, first it's Madame Colette, then the judge who convicted Antoine, then Pepi & Alice, with whom he had a secret affair, then all at once Randall, Marianne & another prostitute ...

But the inspector has found out something: Professor Waldemar's daughter Leonora might not be quite the angel she has appeared to be, as she might have worked at Madame Colette's club at one point as well, & soon it comes out that professor Waldemar did indeed have a rather incestuous passion for his daughter, & was a regular at Madame Colette's house (but he was always masked, thus noone could recognize him), & the inspector can interfere when he's just about to rape the girl. 

By now Waldemar has gone totally bonkers though & claims the dead eyes of dead Antoine's dead head (which was in his possession) made him do it, but mad or not, he still manages to get away though, but rather foolishly climbs the Eiffel Tower to escape the police ...


A mix of crime film & giallo, with a few mad scientist- (especially in Howard Vernon's role) & (bogus) supernatural horror-elements (Antoine promising to come back from the dead) thrown in, which stays to enjoyably wild throughout, with a few explicit gore scenes & pseudo-psychedelic murders only adding to the enjoyment. Now I don't mean to say it's a good film as such, not even a better giallo (on an objective quality level), but it's still an entertaining film, in a trashy sort of way.
