Les Aventures de Rabbi Jacob (1973)

Aventures de Rabbi Jacob, Les (1973, FRA) C-95m. *** D: Gérard Oury. Starring Louis de Funès, Suzy Delair, Marcel Dalio, Claude Giraud, Renzo Montagnani. André Falcon, Miou-Miou, Jacques Francois, Claude Piéplu, Dominique Zardi. One of comedy star de Funès' best films, this one casts him as an antisemitic businessman, who is taught a lesson when he is taken hostage and forced to disguise as a Rabbi. Mad-cap slapstick comedy was one of Louis' biggest hits (it was even given theatrical release in the U.S. and nominated for a Golden Globe). Intelligent script, unforgettable scenes in the chewing gum factory. Photographed by Henri Decae. English title: THE MAD ADVENTURES OF 'RABBI' JACOB.
