Excellent French Comedy
29 July 2001 | by (Wootton Bassett, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this film in India in the mid-70s an a dubbed English version called "One Man Band". Louis des Funes was already popular thanks to his "Fantomas" movies and this one is a very inventive comedy. Worth watching and to keep when available. I have been looking for a video of this film for years.
