'Louis de Funes' had had a heart attack one year earlier and this marked his return to movies. The ads were supposed to have only his name above the title with Coluche's name in the lower credits. It was Louis de Funès himself who insisted that the posters should announce "De Funes and Coluche" above the title See more »
As several other readers pointed out, "L'aile ou la cuisse" is probably an integer part of German television culture. At least for those of us who spent a lot of time glued to the screen, as I did as a child... This movie is a very funny satire on modern life and De Funes and Coluche are just great to watch performing. Above all, there's the wonderful 70ies music score of Vladimir Cosma that plunges you right back into those grand days of French comedy. Probably one of the best ones De Funes ever made. Unfortunately, it was also one of his last ones. Another interesting fact is that Pierre Richard was first to play the role of Gerard, the son of Duchemin. He was occupied by another production at that time, so Coluche came in.
