Le Magnifique

Le Magnifique (literally The Magnificent) is a French movie released in 1973, starring Jacqueline Bisset and Jean-Paul Belmondo. Le Magnifique is a slapstick spoof of B-series espionage movies and novels.

Synopsis

François Marlin (Belmondo) is a Jean Bruce type writer of pulp espionage novels, and about half of the film plays in his imagination, where he is the world-renowned superspy Bob St Clair. Christine (Jacqueline Bisset) is a sociology student who is interested in the novels, but in the writer's imagination, she is Tatiana, his paramour. Her clear fascination with Bob St Clair, an irrealistic and idealized hero, begins to bother Marlin, who in real life is the very opposite of his creation: a clumsy, frustrated man who barely makes enough money to get by. As a result Marlin begins to sabotage his own hero. Le Magnifique is also a common nickname for NHL great Mario Lemieux.

UK Release

In the United Kingdom, Le Magnifique was titled "How to Destroy the Reputation of the Greatest Secret Agent", and was released as the B-Movie to the film Doc Savage in 1975.
