Mr. Freedom is a 1969 film by American expatriate photographer and filmmaker William Klein. In addition to starring popular French actress Delphine Seyrig, this anti-imperialist farce features cameos by well known actors Donald Pleasance and Philippe Noiret, as well as musician Serge Gainsbourg.

This anti-American satire recounts the spectacularly unheroic exploits of "Mr. Freedom", personification of the American Superman sent into the world to liberate it from Communism. The combination of sex and politics seems irresistable to modern left-wing sophisticates. --Amos Vogel
