“Soigne ton gauche” July 17, 2007

Posted by Jeff in 1929 through WWII, Movies.

“Soigne ton gauche”

Literally, “Look out for the left hook” …

… a 1936 short starring Jacques Tati, directed by René Clément, later best known Les Jeux Interdits (Forbidden Games; 1952).

No, it’s not Tati at his best, but it gives you an idea of just how much he owed to Chaplin and Keaton.
