Saltwaterlike this one:

The Good Sister says: "nom d'une pipe!"   LOL   because as a nun she cannot swear.  :-)
At the end she says: "merci mon Dieu"   (many ​thanks to God).

TeeJay87My favourite from the series is "Le gendarme et les extra-terrestres" , when Cruchot and his troops had to deal with aliens

SaltwaterMy favourite films with Louis de Funes are:

La Grande Vadrouille  (with Bourvil)
​Le corniaud  (with Bourvil)
​Fantômas (with Jean Marais)
Piou Piou (with Jacqueline Maillan)
Le Petit Baigneur
Les Grandes Vacances
Le Grand Restaurant

too many good films....
His best duo was with Bourvil of course!

alitta2True classic indeed! Interesting fact that the Dyane was supposed to be its successor, but it wasn't that popular, was it?

SaltwaterIn the range of budget cars of this period, the most popular cars were the 2CV (Citroën)  and the R4 (Renault).
Both were extremely basic, functional, robust, and easy to maintain.

"Dyane", even the name fell into oblivion.  ;-)
