"Newly restored in high definition, Film Movement's presentation is a splendid package, especially considering this is the first time the title is available in the US. As far as high class screwball goes, one can't complain about the beautifully rendered color palette."
– Nicholas Bell, Ion Cinema
"Pierre Richard, a talented physical comic, stars in this spy farce directed by Yves Robert, which amounts to a 90-minute testimony to the French love for Jerry Lewis. Pleasant, with a moment or two of genuine grace."
– Dave Kehr, The Chicago Reader

Synopsis

A frothy French farce, The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe is a classic madcap comedy about espionage, surveillance and mistaken identity. When Francois (Pierre Richard), an unsuspecting violinist, is misidentified as a superspy by national intelligence, outrageous antics ensue. As everyone (including Mireille Darc, playing a knock-out henchwoman) falls over each other in their misguided attempts to discover the tall blond man's secrets, his best friend complicates matters even further when he overhears a salacious recording of Francois with his wife. The whole merry-go-round comes crashing to a halt in one final showdown, pitting spy versus supposed spy with hilarious results. Elegantly filmed and accompanied by a memorable score, The Tall Blond Man with One Black Shoe is one of the most seminal comedies of the 1970s.
