Nick and his partner Al stage a payroll holdup. Al is shot and Nick kills a policeman. Nick hides out at a public pool, where he meets Peg Dobbs. They go back to her apartment and he forces her family to hide him from the police manhunt.
A chain mail-clad gunfighter contends with a pacifist sheriff, a seductive banker, a one-armed Mexican bandit, corrupt businessmen and hippies while trying to learn the secret of the money allegedly stolen by his lynched brother.
Johnny Hallyday,a French famous pop star was certainly overjoyed when he learned he had an American director for his turkey! But for John Berry who had directed John Garfield in his sensational "He ran all the way" ,it was an all time low.
Everything in this movie tries to sound "American" .From the -mediocre - songs that Johnny bellows out (the title track "A tout casser" ) to the motorbikes and the gang a la "the wild ones".Supporting cast includes Simone Signoret's daughter Catherine Allégret as Johnny 's girlfriend and Michel Serrault which has an original way of using vegetables.
Strictly for Hallyday's fans.
