I wrote about Forbidden Fruit in May; this is a wonderful vehicle for Fernandel, one of the greatest actors in movie history. Coeur de coq isn't nearly as good: it was ground out to a formula by a hack director. A man is too timid to ask a girl out, decides to kill himself by lying down in the road and waiting for a car to come along... A doctor finds him, offers to transplant a rooster's heart into the man which will make him irresistible to women.
Even as science fiction this is silly, but with Fernandel singing, the scenes shot in Venice, the pretty women, it's all so entertaining. I can't get enough of this guy.
