Join us for this classic French spy movie at the Spy Museum!
Wednesday, August 24, 2016 – 6:30 PM
When this lighthearted tale of espionage, surveillance, and mistaken identity premiered in 1972 it became an international sensation. Pierre Richard is Francois the tall blond man, an unsuspecting violinist who becomes a pawn in a goofy, but deadly, game of spy versus spy within France’s Counter-Espionage department. When he is purposely misidentified as a superspy, he unwittingly leads the operatives on his trail though a madcap chase as they attempt to discover his non-existent secrets. The screwball comedy features a fabulous femme fatale, much slapstick, and lots and lots of collateral damage.
Enjoy popcorn and sparkling French soda along with the evening’s screening.
