Storyline

A series of vignettes, in which Noel-Noel appears as the moderator, lecturer, commentator and leading actor, that examine the bores and pests of everyday life much like Pete Smith and Robert Benchley had done for years in American short subjects. Among those are the Practical Joker who will do anything for a laugh; the Party Entertainer who never stops singing; the Talkative Neigbor who forgets the time; the noisy neighbors who dance the tango all night; and women drivers, people who telephone at meal time, the friend you never saw before and amatuer medical experts. Much use of trick photography, montages, puppets and animation along with some adult Gallic wit and gentle satire. The title was changed to "The Spice of Life" when it was released in the USA in 1953. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Wonderful French Comedy. Clever, but might be dated now.
9 October 2002 | by (Rancho La Costa, CA USA) – See all my reviews

I saw this French (subtitled) film at a Film Festival at the Thalia Theater in New York back in the late 50s or early 60s. To my knowledge,it has never been available since. I thought it was hilarious, but it might not work today. It was something like an expanded Pete Smith short with a number of episodes dealing with various "pests". I have tried for many years to find a source for this film, but I doubt that it exists anywhere now other than in some obscure film vault in France. I would certainly like to see it again to assure myself that I wasn't wrong in giving it such a high rating.
