Jesús Franco - Camino solitario (1984)



29f7c043f76a2bde437fd0d52a185152

SYNOPSIS:
The life of a private eye in Spain is very different from the one surrounded by blondes and booze that we see in movies. Especially if the detective in the case is our hero Alfredo Pereira, who divides his time between his more or less scandalous cases in the most luxurious and international corner of the Costa del Sol, and his unsual private life. His private life is called Flavia, and it must be admitted she is a blonde, with huge blue eyes. The thing is, she is seven years old and the daughter of our detective, who was given custody of her when he divorced his wife. A new case puts Pereira in contact with a beautiful woman, Eva Radeck, the wife of a foreign financier. Their story is going to perhaps take up too much of Alfredo Pereira's time as the investigation takes on increasingly sombre tints of hatred, vengeance and death. Pereira, who is only tough on the outside, gets caught in the web spun by the seductive Eva and becomes an innocent party in the case, while continuing to be Flavia's soft-hearted daddy. Events come to a head with the vicious murder of Eva.

Claude Bernard-Aubert - Le Retour des Veuves (1979)

The film opens with Jean-Pierre Armand and a male, presumably Gregory, being entertained by two strippers. One is blonde (XNK0388, but this could be Danièle David with curlier hair) and the other brunette (Sophie Duflot). They strip then dress then have sex with the two men.
Then Gregory looks up the death notices in Le Figaro and the theme of Veuves en chaleur resumes, but with more comedy - very Carry-On style. They disagree on tactics, however. Jean-Pierre thinks a visit is better, Gregory favours a letter of condolence.
The first widow is Brigitte Lahaie. Jean-Pierre visits her and calls her Madame ..., but, tearfully, she says "Appelez-moi Madeleine." So he turns away and shouts "Madeleine!" thinking Madeleine is the maid. This gives her the giggles and leads to a b/g scene.
