Before French director Claude Chabrol was adopted by the auterists, he was a workaday craftsman turning out purely commercial products. Code Name: Tiger is an average spy-counterspy effort, starring Roger Hanin as a secret agent known as "Le Tiger". Unlike James Bond, Le Tiger is a military strategist, choosing to attack first before pondering more subtle, subversive methods. Le Tiger's current mission is to prevent a secret organization from bollixing up a deal between Turkey and France for the sale of 40 fighter jets. The original French title for Code Name: Tiger was Le Tigre aime la chair fraiche (The Tiger Likes Fresh Blood).
