Auto stunt scene

Reminiscent of the motorcycle stunt driving scene in the 1968 installment Le gendarme se marie, France Rumilly featured again as the stunt driving nun, "Soeur Clotilde", this time in a spectacular and comedic scene, driving a Citroën 2CV, a year after James Bond drove a 2CV in For Your Eyes Only, but including the gag whereby the car breaks up in two pieces, and the driver continues driving the front-wheel drive front half of the car, three years before this gag is repeated by James Bond in a Renault 11, in the 1985 film A View to a Kill.
