Arthur and Anatole are two little robbers. They want to rob money, money that will travel in a special train from Paris to Bruxelles. They don't know that other people have planned to do the same thing.Written by

In an early segment, a TV news update announces a big clue about the crook known as The Brain. He has a very large cerebrum and under stress or anxiety, his neck can't support his head. So, his head drops to one side (left or right). The next scene shows Col. Matthews with his head dropping to the side. He is then identified and flees in a police chase. He holds his head upright with his hand until he gets into his limo and escapes. But he never has another instance in which his head drops in the film. Not even in several scenes that would be highly stressful to any human being - i.e., when his apartment is all but destroyed, or when he's stuffed in a box, or when he's being chased and shot at.

One of the all-time-good-to-see-again-and-again films
One of my all-time favorites. Everything is in it: a very good story where everything matches, the best of comedy actors of that time (French and international), the music which is typical for the swinging sixties (The American Breed). Unfortunately, there was never a second film as far as I know, although the end of the first film would have been a good start for a follow-up film.
