Dufourquet (Belmondo) is in Paris on shore leave, eager to see his Agnes (Dorléac). When he finally sees her, only briefly before she's kidnapped and held for ransom by a treasure-hungry family friend. A James Bond spoof, in the wake of Belmondo's swashbuckling success, "Cartouche" (1962, opposite Claudia Cardinale), with puzzle solving, murder in Brasilia, art thieves, and a pursuit to find sacred Amazon treasure. Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Writing, Story and Screenplay: Written Directly for the Screen (1965), and winner of a New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Foreign Language Film (1964).

Shot on location in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and Paris.

8 x 10 inches. Near Fine.
