About the Actor:

Louis De Funes (1914-1983) is hailed around the world as the European king of comedy. He began in the 'music-halls' and cabarets of Paris and then graduated to supporting roles in films, becoming a well-known character actor in the 1940s and 1950s. Finally in 1963 he had a hit film of his very own with "Pouic-Pouic", and from there he became the top French comic of the decade. Some of his best known films: "Le Corniaud" (aka The Sucker, 1965), "La Grande Vadrouille" (aka Don't Look Now... We've Been Shot At, 1966) and "The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob" (1973). The second film in a series of six, "Le Gendarme a New York" is a hilarious spoof of 1960s American culture as seen through the eyes of the French. There is even a wonderful dance sequence borrowed from "West Side Story". The 'Gendarme' series (1964-1982) proved to be very successful for Louis de Funes, and the films are still broadcast on French television on a regular basis.

From the Contributor:

Jean Girault worked frequently with Louis de Funes. He directed each of the six films in the 'Gendarme' series, as well as the de Funes films "Les Grandes Vacances" (1967) and "L'Avare" (1980). He also directed Jean Gabin's last film, "L'Annee Sainte" (aka Pilgrimage to Rome, 1976).
