PerformersRaimu - Tartarin
A boastful and mythomaniac Southerner and decent middle-class man from Tarascon, Tartarin goes big-game hunting in Africa in order to silence the rumor mill and, even though no particularly successful action has come out of it, he returns back home as a triumphant victor.
A remake of this film was shot in 1962 by Francis Blanche.
