When Von Strohm tells him René knew about it, Von Klinkerhoffen tells them to catch and execute René. Herr Flick however, thinks the big-nosed French collaborating general had something to do with the plot to poison the generals and tries to find him. Meanwhile, René wants to quit the resistance and gets several disguises he can use to avoid being caught. Written by Marco van Hoof <k_luifje7@hotmail.com>

All French Generals have big noses.
13 February 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

General Von Klinkerhoffen issues the arrest and execution of Rene, Rene subsequently disguises himself as The French General, Herr Flick later states that the guilty party must be The General.

Super slapstick at its absolute best, it has dozens of double entendres throughout, if you like humour Carry on style you will love this one, the final scene is the best, with the exploding nose.

Rene looks hilarious dresses as The French General, there is a touch of Inspector Clouseau about him, particularly with the nose.

Why is there in my bed, on my hot water bottle a duck? It's a brilliant line, Madame Fanny was so unbelievably funny.

Rene finally tells Michelle where to go, and she of course uses her charms to win him back, he had one fatal weakness. That is one funny scene.

Alune.... 9/10
