Man and Child (1956)
Misnamed film, the girl only shows up at the start and end, is an otherwise pretty good Eddie Constantine film. Filled with witty remarks and more than its share of suspense this is light entertainment that holds your attention.
As with many Constantine films there is a knowing wink that helps glance over the rough patches. Eddie is clearly aware this is a film in such as the moment when someone doesn't believe who Eddie is in context of the film and says " Yea, well I'm Eddie Constantine" to which Eddie says "Well I have no idea who that is" as he glances into the camera.
Ultimately this is a lot of fun and is recommended.
