The Crackpots / Crazy Show

A Feature film by Robert Dhéry

Produced by Cité Films, Fides, Stella Films

Release in France : 16/12/1949

    Synopsis

    The French Branquignol is a plotless, shapeless musicomedy revue in the tradition of "Hellzapoppin." The story, such as it is, concerns a theatrical troupe's efforts to stage a charity show. This plot peg is merely an excuse to present the "Branquinol" company at their most zany and uninhibited. The show has more of a satirical edge than one might expect, with certain theatrical cliches given the once-over in uproarious fashion (in this, the film resembles the Forbidden Broadway stage revues of the 1980s and 1990s).
