furious struggle between pinups and gangsters
1 September 2017 | by happytrigger-64-390517See all my reviews

I wanted to see some movies with Claudine Dupuis so I discovered this incredible comedy, about girls fighting furiously and sadistically against gangsters (don't miss Louis de Funès as Jeannot la Bonne Affaire). The wild girl team is : Louise Carletti (Raoul's beautiful wife, they made 8 movies together), Claudine Dupuis, Dominique Wilms, Michèle Philippe, and Suzy Prim. If you like this "should be cult" action comedy, jump on "Les Pépées Au Service Secret".

Since then, I try to see movies directed by Raoul André, really not masterpieces but a lot of freedom in script and directing, real entertainment. He often directs the same craziest bunch in french comedies : Francis Blanche, Darry Cowl, Jean Lefebvre, Michel Serrault, Jean Poiret, Michel Galabru, Jean Yanne, Robert Berri, ... My favorite? Surely "Ces Messieurs de la Famille".
