Jean-Pierre Melville, born Jean-Pierre Grumbach, was of Alsatian Jewish descent. Having to flee Nazi-occupied France during World War II, he joined the French Resistance and took the pseudonym Melville, in tribute to American novelist Herman Melville. He subsequently retained his war name as his stage name, once the war was over. This personal experience of the war and in particular of resistance fighting impacted Melville's formative year and has an influence which can be seen in his films.

Beppo Manzoni est un parrain de la pègre parisienne dans la période troublée de l'immédiat avant-guerre. Il est le patron de plusieurs établissements de nuit, notamment un dancing huppé dont certains danseurs sont également ses hommes de main. Beppo est engagé dans la lutte contre le fascisme. Il cache trois Italiens poursuivis par la police de Mussolini. Le commissaire Detaix, membre de la redoutable organisation de "La Cagoule", surveille Beppo... Pour le tromper, Beppo se fait passer pour un sympathisant de la cause fasciste et met en scène l'assassinat de ses amis italiens. Mais, par ailleurs, ses hommes organisent des attentats et le cambriolage de l'appartement du patron de "La Cagoule". La trahison de Puppie, l'un des danseurs de Beppo, amène l'assassinat – réel cette fois – des réfugiés italiens, la mise à sac des établissements de Beppo, la tentative d'assassinat sur Gino (l'homme de confiance de Beppo) et l'essai du commissaire Detaix pour mettre la main sur le nouvel établissement que se faisait construire Beppo. Mais la repentance de Puppie et la solidarité du milieu permettent à Beppo et ses hommes de retourner la situation. Le film se termine avec la mobilisation des danseurs.

Jerome Martinaud, a wealthy, influential attorney in a small French town who falls under suspicion for the rape and murder of two little girls. He is the only suspect, but the evidence against him is circumstantial. As the city celebrates New Year's Eve, the police led by Inspector Antoine Gallien, who is investigating the double rape/murder case, brings the lawyer in for questioning; at first politely, and then less so, as the interrogation team consisting of Inspectors Gallien and Marcel Belmont chips away at the suspect's alibi. They interrogate him for hour after hour while Martinaud continues to maintain his innocence. We learn all about the evidence; we meet Martinaud's wife Chantal who tells Gallien about the rift between them and the origin of it, which may be an eight-year-old girl (Camille) Martinaud was in love with. On the face of overwhelming evidence and feeling let down by his wife, Martinaud confesses to the two rapes and murder. However a fresh corpse inside the boot of a stolen car, and the car's owner turns out to be guilty of the crime--exculpating Martinaud. Martinaud leaves the police station and finds his wife who has committed suicide.

The film starts with the murder of District Attorney Vargas in Palermo, amongst a climate of demonstrations, strikes and political tension between the Left and the government. The subsequent investigation failing, the police assign the protagonist Inspector Rogas (Lino Ventura) to solve the case. While he is starting his investigation, two judges are killed. All victims turn out to have worked together on several cases. After Rogas discovers evidence of corruption surrounding the three government officials, he is encouraged by superiors "not to forage after gossip," but to trail the "crazy lunatic who for no reason whatever is going about murdering judges." This near admission of guilt drives Rogas to seek out three men wrongfully convicted by the murdered judges. He is joined by a journalist friend working for a far-left newspaper, Cusan.
