Four films starring Louis de Funes;
Those goofy Gauls sure know how to tickle our funny bones! Louis de Funès was one of France’s original funnymen, with the rubberfaced prankster hitting his stride in French slapstick comedies of the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s. Four of his comic capers are collected here:
When Philippe Bosquier fails his high school certificate, his irate father decides to send him to England to work as an au pair: not exactly the summer holiday the devious Philippe had in mind. In exchange, Mr. Bosquier welcomes a young English girl, Shirley, to his home. But as Philippe's tricks mount up, he and Shirley eventually run away together: two young lovers, pursued by two furious fathers...

A lampman by trade, Leguignon is in trouble with the law. Although his lawyer does all he can, the Leguignon family is soon evicted and rehoused in a dilapidated new home. But when the children find treasure, there is more trouble in store for the unfortunate lampman!
Robert, a theatrical producer, is rehearsing his new revue, "Peek-a-Boo!". Inspector Leboeuf, intrigued by the title, is eager to find out whether the show has any lewd scenes. Mingling with the actors, he proves to be an excellent comedian, so much so that Robert offers him a part.
