Familiar premise, enjoyable film
29 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw this 10/28/15 via YouTube. The version I saw was in French without subtitles.

Predictable comedy faithfully sticking to the innocent-guy-gets-mixed-up-with-bad-guys formula. The story rattles right along as rival gangs work on Cowl's character, Martin, a hospital nurse sought for what he heard a wounded gangster reveal in a delirium.

The premise is a reliable source of laughs – just ask Bob Hope. Cowl graciously repeats the film's title at key points in the story (i.e., the beginning and the end) for those who may have arrived at the theater late. And lest any of the funny bits in this movie get lost on the audience, music is always there with appropriate punctuation.

After having seen a few of Cowl's performances ("Jaloux Comme un Tigre", "Les Combinards", "En Effeuillant la Marguerite"), I found this one of his better efforts. His Martin comes across as a diverting blend of Cantinflas and Arnold Stang. Interesting to see Fernand Sardou as one of the bad guy chiefs, a role he effectively plays for laughs after his memorable turn as one of the grim poker playing hoods in the opening scene of "Rififi" (1955).
