Louis De Funes in Le Grande Restaurant

In 1966, veteran French character actor Louis De Funes was well on his way to becoming even higher on that country's totem pole of comedy than Jerry Lewis and his vehicle here was le Grand Restaurant--although the German poster above capitalizes on the actor's mere presence by calling the fikm, translated, LOUIS THE SPAGHETTI CHEF!

He never quite caught on in the US, his biggest attempt probably being the early seventies comedy., THE MAD ADVENTURES OF RABBI JACOB. Although highly touted by some influential critics, the American public stayed away.
