La Grande Vadrouille
From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
La Grande Vadrouille (literally: The Great Stroll. Released in the USA as Don't Look Now... We're Being Shot At!) is a 1966 comedy film about how the crew of a Royal Air Force B-17 Flying Fortress shot down over Paris must then make their way through German-occupied France with the main help of two French citizens with very different mindsets.
For over forty years (until 2008, when Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis attracted over 20,000,000 cinema-goers), La Grande Vadrouille was the most successful French film in France of all time, topping the box office with over 17,200,000 viewers in cinemas. It remains the third most successful film ever in France, of any nationality, behind the 1997 version of Titanic, and Bienvenue chez les Ch'tis.
