With little more than a skeleton of a story, this is essentially a filmed record of Robert Dhery's stage revue, complete with dancing girls from the Lido. The minuscule plot revolves around the efforts of police inspector Lebeouf (Louis de Funes--his character name translated literally as

MacBeef) as he attends the revue's rehearsal to make sure no decency laws are being broken. Also watching the show are a plumber (Raymond Bussieres), who would rather watch the rehearsals than work and his wife (Rosine Luguet), who performs a striptease to prove that she is just as appealing as

the showgirls. There are a number of musical numbers performed, including "The Creation of the World" (scantily clad ladies dressed as the Moon, Water, Vegetation, etc.), "In the Rain" (a "Singing in the Rain"-type number with dancing girls in see-through raincoats), and the rather humorous comedy

sketch "The Bathing Huts" (in which a male bather tries desperately to see the derriere of a pretty young femme). There's also an odd dance number set in a Chicago speakeasy in which a white thug beats up a black patron and strips the dress off his white dance partner--all without the recognition

of a policeman on the beat. The film was released in the US in 1961. (In French; English subtitles.)
