Sam Roffe, president of a multi-national pharmaceutical corporation, is killed while mountain-climbing. It is first determined to be an accident, but Inspector Max Hormung later deduces that Roffe was murdered. Sam's daughter Elizabeth assumes control of the company, and while traveling through Europe she immediately becomes a target as well. Suspicion falls on the Roffe cousins, all of whom want to go public with the company and sell their stock at a huge profit. Since this would be against her father's wishes, Elizabeth rejects their advice and decides to keep the company within the family. As Inspector Hormung investigates the background of the cousins, more attempts are made on Elizabeth's life. Hoping to reveal the guilty party, Hormung is able to connect these attempts to a series of murders on prostitutes, which are recorded on snuff films.Written by
Audrey Hepburn was aged about 50 when this movie was made and released. The character she plays was much younger and in her 30s. Writer Sidney Sheldon revised his "Bloodline" novel to accommodate the literary age of the film version's lead actress. Hepburn had been in semi-retirement when she agreed to do this picture. The DVD sleeve notes declare that this movie was one of the final films of actress Audrey Hepburn. Hepburn's salary on this movie was $1,000,000 plus a percentage of the gross. See more »
As Elizabeth prepares for her first meeting at Roffe, we see the board of directors waiting for the meeting to start...but the shot is taken from a later scene and shows them with different outfits, hairstyles and seating assignments than when the meeting starts a moment later. See more »
Remember, the cousins are just people.
Mmm, it's just people that terrify me. Particularly cousins.
I'll tell you what you do: You go in there, and you look them square in the eye, and you think of them sitting around the board table in their underwear.
Trouble is most of them look absolutely gorgeous.

This movie is not a good one but a very special movie to me is not only the mature Audrey Hepburn in this one but is the very beautiful and fantastic Romy Schneider any movie with a cast like this should be better but doesnot matter you will love it , plus is Maurice Ronet a major international star he too die young, Romy at this time was a big international super star and one of the most beautiful women in this planet i am sorry for Audrey but i love Romy much more sadly she die young and have a tragic life, Romy was mainly an European star at this point but what surprise me the most is that many of the people written a review doesn't mention her name please she was as beautiful and important as Audrey Hepburn was
