Serge Reggiani succulent as the wolf ...
4 September 2015 | by (France) – See all my reviews

"Une Fille A Croquer" is the fourth movie directed by Raoul André, director of very light and unpretentious comedies from the 50's to the 70's. His first movies are very hard to find and I thank gentleman Jean-Marie for showing me a print.

The script is from Francis Blanche : before becoming an actor, he was also a songwriter (for Charles Trenet with Jean Solar), a poet, and a radio phonic author and interpreter. He already co-wrote the script and dialogs of "l'Assassin Est A l'Ecoute" already directed by Raoul André in 1948. The script of "Une Fille A Croquer" is more subtle than his next and so bad "Faites-Moi Confiance", so rubbish that the audience would break the seats and the theater and leave.

"Une Fille A Croquer" is a modern and post-war version of "Little Red Riding Hood", and Serge Reggiani is succulent as the wolf. Maybe the souvenir of World War 2's hunger inspired Francis Blanche for transposing the tale "Little Red Riding Hood" in post-war time.

Beside Serge Reggiani, you can of course see Francis Blanche and his father Louis (Blanche is a long time family of actors) and also his partner on radio Pierre Dac. You can also see Raoul André's wife, Louise Carletti. And Gaby Morlay...

There is some confusion on IMDb note about the filming location : it is written "Chateau d'Heumont" in Saint-Germain-En-Laye and this castle doesn't exist, but there is a "chateau d'Hennemont" in Saint-Germain-En-Laye which we do not see in the movie. There might be some sequences in Saint-Germain-En-Laye's forest. Raoul André will shoot a few years later two movies in that town.
