There's a bit of Charley Chase and Buster Keaton in Noel-Noel's portrayal of a status-conscious husband in Pied, a Chevel et en Volure. The bourgeois protagonist and his wife (Denise Grey) make it their mission to match the sumptuous lifestyle of their prospective in-laws. To do this, the couple purchases an expensive automobile. The next step: learning to drive. What follows is a series of unrelated but undeniably hilarious gags, perhaps better suited to a 2-reel comedy than a feature film, but still well worth having. The title, by the way, translates to By Foot, By Horse and By Car.
