Fernandel plays a most unlikely western bandit in the French spoof Dynamite Jack. Actually, the horse-faced comedian essays a dual role. He is seen as a rough-n-touch gunfighter and as a bumbling French immigrant. Inevitably, the two personalities are confused, leading to no end of slapstick complications. Dynamite Jack is an amusing enough novelty, though it hardly represents Fernandel at his best.
