Poster Notes:
No year on poster but appears to be original vintage - 1959. Some major repairs are being made on the Bank of Belgium's roof while the Brussels Exposition is going on. A group of thieves, masterminded by Parisian Rigaud, decide that this would be the perfect time to help themselves to Exposition receipts held by the bank. Tiller, the money-mad operator of a night club on a river barge, is a member of the gang. She's been scarred by childhood memories of wartime France. Other robbers include Gaven, her assistant, and Hossein, the inside man posing as a construction worker in the bank's rehabbing. But problems arise when Tiller won't sell her nightclub to a deported gangster called "The Bug" (Hanin). Hanin gets angry and has his mistress Monfort lead a group of lady gangsters in wrecking the club. Hossein realizes that this could destroy all the plans and arranges a meeting between Rigaud and Hanin. A third party (Blanchar) arranges a truce, and Tiller agrees to sell her club within the week. But Hanin is faced with deportation once more unless he blows the lid on an important waterfront drug-smuggling operation. He mistakenly assumes that Tiller's club is the headquarters and rats on her. He kidnaps Gaven and tries to work his way into the robbery scheme. A ferocious gun battle follows in which the rival gangs kill each other off.
