Although the name of Fernandel appears before the title of the film in the cast ,he is not really the principal in this comedy.Actually the screenplay is made of subplots which are supposed to make a seamless whole.

It's essentially a depiction of the underworld circa 1934 and it features colorful characters :two prostitutes,complaining of the shortage of clientèle and declaring that the government should do something about it;a barman (Fernandel)who 's drug-trafficker/pimp Jo Le Frisé 's dealer,it's a nice little earner;two well-meaning men,tired of marriage, who loosen up a bit ;one of these gentlemen's wife ,taking her less-than-handsome suitor to the sleazy dance hall where the poor lad does not understand a single slang word and catches a cold.

The censorship was more lenient in those happy times:a stark naked woman performs an erotic dance with a ball ,much to a middle-aged man's pleasure (but not to his sour-tempered wife's).And it is not a very rare occurrence in the production of the era (see also " Lac Aux Dames" or "L'Esclave Blanc".)
