| A pleasant little comedy...
Fernandel stars as the title character--a poor schmuck, again who is trying, to make a living at yet another job as a door-tog-time-door salesman. This time, he's selling vacuum cleaners and his long-time fiancée is worried that yet again, he'll fall on his face. But, the well-meaning and dim Casimir is determined to make it big.

For much of the film, Casimir goes from one failed sale to another--making the film seem very episodic. Most of these are moderately amusing and the film is rather enjoyable. However, about mid-way through the film, he stumbles upon a lead that takes up the entire rest of the film. Unfortunately, this large chunk of the film is not super funny--pleasant, yes, but also a bit overlong and slow. Still, with Fernandel's personality and a few nice gags here and there, the film is a nice enough time-passer. Hilarious? No. But not bad, either.

In some ways, this film is a bit like Abbott & Costello film "Little Giant" merged with a Mr. Hulot film. While I am one of the few people who loved "Little Giant", I strongly recommend you see it--it has a depth and acting that make it more than just a light comedy.
