This story was very popular at that time in France : the first version was made only 8 years prior to that one. The theme song was also very popular among children! I remember singing that when I was a kid in the sixties! But, today, I saw this childish movie with adult eyes and I think it's got too much noise, howling, confusion in it. Bourvil plays a one dimension character and he's boring after a while. Périer is very fine as the hero, so is
the so cute Dany Robin! See this today as a good example of simple entertainment from France in the fifties. The film makes fun of the French Revolution, but some jokes are very weak.
