The motive here is too obvious and while there are some unexpected twists that happen near the end, it's just kind of boring and too bloodless.
After a fatal accident an old railroad worker leaves some money to his family causing a bloody mess A fun little Giallo running a breezy 80 minutes set in rural France. Being made in it clearly influenced later Gialli and while the cast isn't strong in all regards the police force there are no complaints in the ladies department Femi Benussi, Valeria Ciangottini, Jeanette Len.
Plus we get Ernesto Colli trying to play a teenager! An old deaf man who works the railway lines is killed by a train he didn't hear coming and when his will is read a surprisingly large inheritance is revealed.
Due to profit from the death are three sisters, young naive Colette, sexpot Simone who has a flash nightclub owning boyfriend and a third frumpier sister who's married to a wrong'un called Leon. None of them can cash in for 3 years though because the old man took on a young backwards ward who must reach adulthood before any money is paid out.
When the young lad is also killed by a train a couple of days later murder is suspected and an out of town inspector is sent from….hounsperomoo.tk
Mildly amusing, but overall dull giallo with weak kills, a snoozy extended chase scene, and all the requisite improbable plot twists. The photography and locations are nice, though. A railroad worker is murdered.
At the reading of his will they find out he was quite rich but has a stipulation in his will keeping them from getting their hands on it until the youngest, Janot, has turned 21 3 Years. They all begin to get killed off. Review by Bryan Strang.

Details Back. Andi Buckner and her twin brother, Bolden, have had enough of the rough streets of Detroit.
When they can no longer bear the drugs and abuse within their home, the twins make their escape: Bolden to the military, and Andi to wherever the wind takes her. With few belongings and no specific destination, Andi eventually finds herself across the table from a kind old man in a quaint cafe in Spring Hollow, Montana.
A deadly inheritance
Louis "Gramps" Granger, a retired cop, takes Andi under his wing. Andi soon finds a peace she's never known as she roots herself in the small town, working at the cafe and living in a cabin on Gramps's property. But her peace is short-lived.
When an enemy from Gramps's past murders the old man, Andi's need to see justice served draws her into an investigation far beyond her own abilities.
