Few American theatres in 1952 would have run Je T'ai ete Trois Fois under its highly suggestive original title, which translates as I Did it Three Times. The film was directed by the inimitable Sacha Guity, who also co-wrote the script and played the leading role of elderly actor Jean Renneval. A notorious roue, Renneval is currently making time with the wife (Lana Marconi) of a ripe-for-cuckolding merchant named Henri (Bernard Blier). Having already been married twice to cheating spouses, Henri isn't psychologically prepared to find his third wife in the arms of Renneval. Fortunately, the aging actor is dressed as a clergyman (the part he's playing in his latest production), and thus is able to wriggle out of an uncomfortable situation by preaching an impromptu sermon about trust and fidelity!
