explosively funny version of Georges Feydeau's classic,
with a complex series of mistaken identities, clandestine
assignations and misplaced but explosive jealousies
- all happening at breakneck speed. Victor Deboshe,
a middle-class insurance salesman, becomes impotent
and his wife, Yvonne, assumes he has taken a mistress.
To test his fidelity she has her friend, Lucille, write
an anonymous letter to Victor claiming to be infatuated
with him and proposing a rendezvous at the notorious
Hotel Pussy a Go-Go. Thinking a mistake has been made,
Victor persuades his friend, Maurice (a famous womanizer),
to keep the appointment for him, after which the complications
begin to multiply uproariously. Eventually things are
set right, but not before the action has expanded to
include a violently jealous husband (a hot-blooded Spaniard),
a suicidal leap from a window, a nephew with an unfortunate
(but hilarious) speech defect, a furious Indian fakir
and a lascivious butler, all tumbled together into a
riotous medley of slamming doors, revolving beds and
wildly amiss gun shots-all of which will leave audiences
happily breathless from laughter.
