This french attempt at comedy fails miserably, as remarked by the single reviewer at IMDB. The only good thing is Adrienne Corri, really stunning looking. You half-laughs in two or three moments (the Vargas strip or the Jack's welcome in the saloon) but most of the time you are embarassed at the childishness and inanity of it all.
Plot revolves around a french emigré being the double of a bandit. Fernandel really doesn't know his trade playing the villain.
But the dvd transfer being very good I give it 2\10.
