Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Mon Coquin de Pere translates approximately as My Darned Father. The father in question, played by Claude Dauphin, falls in love with pretty young mademoiselle Gaby Morlay. Trouble is, Dauphin's son Philipe Lamaire has also set his cap for the beauteous Morlay. The film's most enjoyable scene is an extended flashback sequence, consisting of footage from the 1938 French romantic comedy We are No Longer Children -- which also featured Claude Dauphin. While the 1938 film was directed by Auguste Genina, Mon Coquin de Pere was helmed by Georges Lacombe, whose next-to-last film this was.
