Shame On The Night / Children On The Sea
In Paris, a Polish gigolo marries a rich Jewish doctor (Ingrid Thulin) and stands to inherit her estate when she is deported to Dachau after the outbreak of WWII. She returns sometime after the war to find that he's with her daughter Fabienne (Samantha Eggar). And she being a selfish, bitter, heartless bitch considers murdering her mother to get her greedy little hands on the fortune she has inherited. But then Stanislaus Pilgrin (Maximilian Schell) has a better idea: drown her in the bath and execute her plot. Thankfully, she is saved by her senior doctor (Herbert Lom) just in the nick of time. And Pilgrin is stunned. The film is based on a novel by French crime writer Hubert Monteilhet, adapted for film by prolific screenwriter Julius J. Epstein.
