|Have a Nice Night (Passez une bonne nuit)
Original French Poster
Have a Nice Night (original title Passez une bonne nuit) is a 1990 French crime movie directed by Jeannot Szwarc and loosely based on the novel "Have a Nice Night" by James Hadley Chase. It is the second in a series of French screen adaptations of the works of J.H. Chase, preceded by Try This One for Size (1989), and followed by Want to Stay Alive and Believed Violent (both 1990). The series is united by the person of the insurance investigator Tom Lepski (Michael Brandon) (in the original novels Tom Lepski is a police detective in Paradise City, Florida). In Have a Nice Night Lepski provides the security of famous actress Barbara Jenkins and of her priceless emerald when Barbara stays in a hotel on French Riviera.
The following weapons were used in the film Have a Nice Night (Passez une bonne nuit):
