A screwball farce written by Claude Magnier as a play about an industrialist trying to get back the money one of his employees stole and the resulting complications. It was made into a French film (starring the great Creator/LouisDeFunes, who also starred in the play countless times) in 1967 that he co-wrote. Then in 1991 he updated the play to be about a mobster trying to go straight, adding an extra complication to the plot. This was then made into an American film by director Creator/JohnLandis, starring Creator/SylvesterStallone and Creator/TimCurry, among several character actors.

-->'''Aldo''': I did? What's the rap on that?
