Goofiness runs in the family.

For details about Couzinet's career ,see my comment on "Quand Te Tues-Tu?" Like the movie I mention above "La Famille Cucuroux" (literally " the Redass family")is an incredible dud ,which defies the imagination (and the critical judgment).

An aristocrat short of the readies ,Gontran,is to marry a wealthy girl of common birth;but he has to get rid of his lover (Natalie Nattier ,the heroine of Carné"s "Les Portes De La Nuit" ,what a fall!);he 's got a sister, a fifty-something virgin (a permanent feature in Couzinet's work) played by the indomitable Jeanne Fusier-Gir .The plot thickens when two more "sisters" appear and the soon-to-be dad-in-law falls for each of them.Add an American cousin (an Indian played by young Henri Salvador) ,his leopard who wanders through the desirable mansion and forces the servant to vacuum with an armor and Couzet's fondness for gastronomy (caviar ,champagne and partridges) ...

It has to be seen to be believed.Yes,it has.
