| Oh!What a lovely war!
It was to be Bernard Borderie's last movie ;he hit the big time in the sixties with his "Angelique marquise des anges " saga .

It's a bomb . Leonard Whiting ,whose only important part was Franco Zephirelli's "Romeo " , saw his career sinking fast with such a coarse tale .

An Austrian officer ,Franz ,is in love with Sissi (sic) but her father does not want to hear of it ,because he is poor ;so as WW1 breaks out , opportunity knocks,so to speak :he intends to cover himself with glory .

Perhaps made with " Tom Jones" in mind , this is a bawdy story , which keeps trotting out a ludicrous situation till one can't take anymore : the hero dressed up as a woman in a house where two beautiful girls dwell ; the unfortunate officer is also wooed assiduously by a servant ,a bearded brute who resembles Rasputin ...

Why did Curd Jürgens have to get involved in that busisness?
