An entertaining crime comedy with French comedian Fernandel as a recently fired clerk who mistakenly takes the jacket of a gangster while leaving a movie theater. Later, as Fernandel is walking down the street, he pulls out a gun from the pocket and is arrested. The police believe him to be
Public Enemy No. 1 and lock him up. He is rescued, however, by the real crook and eventually informs the police of the gang's hideout. Rota (LA DOLCE VITA, THE GODFATHER) cowrote the score, and Marcel Camus (BLACK ORPHEUS) acted as assistant director. Originally released in 1953 at 105 minutes.
