The story of Father Charles, who hides away because he is laughed at due to his similarity to "that priest in the movies", is a reference to the series of films being made at that time in which Fernandel played Don Camillo. See more »
A hidden gem that needs to be viewed by more cinema buffs.
Fernandel is brilliant in multiple roles that stretch his abilities as a wonderful comedic actor with the "horse faced" grin. The story concept is clever with a delightful "surprise" conclusion, yet it is the episodic statements that give full bloom to this wonderful film; especially the sequence aboard the tramp steamer when a gambling game involves the reaction of its players to a housefly.
