How to become a top designer
7 March 2012 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

Jean Boyer made lots of comedies,some of which are quite successful ("circonstances Atténuantes " is his best);he directed Fernandel in several estimable works ,the best of which is certainly 'Senechal Le Magnifique".

As for this movie,there are some good gags : Fernandel plunging the thermometer in a cup of hot coffee to make his temperature rise;the recording voice on the phone ;the scratched record;the ashtray;the model ,dating her boss Fernandel cause she believes (received idea)that all couturiers are gay (the word is not uttered in the movie )and thus will get away unharmed;anyway in 1939,in "Circonstances Atténuantes" there was a gay character -who ended married with children,probably not to hurt the audience's feelings);the fashion show ,which shows how Boyer could have been greater if he had been more demanding and had had a little more madness.

Fernandel was ably assisted by exuberant Suzy Delair,the star of two Clouzot classics ("L'Assassin Habite Au 21" and "Quai Des Orfevres")
