The Counterfeit Constable

The Counterfeit Constable is a 1964 French comedy film directed by Robert Dhéry and Pierre Tchernia and starring Ronald Fraser, Diana Dors and Arthur Mullard.[1] Its French title is Allez France!. A French rugby supporter in England for a match at Twickenham is knocked out and loses two teeth. He goes to the dentist and during waiting he wears a uniform of another patient, a police officer. He saves by chance Diana Dors, a nextdoor movie star. He is congratulated by his chiefs who take him for true police officer. Many misunderstandings follow after. He becomes lost in London. Not speaking a word of English, he needs to return home to France urgently as he is due to be married.

Main cast


Although it is a French film, The Counterfeit Constable nevertheless carries all the hallmarks and shows the type of humour found in an Ealing comedy. This is probably because nearly half the cast were composed of British actors and the film was mostly set in London.
