    Mister Freedom
    To help fight the communists, comic-strip superhero Mister Freedom (John Abbey) is sent to France by an American group called Freedom Incorporated. Receiving his orders from Doctor Freedom (Donald Pleasence), he battles the Russian Moujik Man and a fire-breathing dragon named Red China Man in this political satire critical of U.S. policies. When one of the heroes nears death, another is sent to take his place to uphold the sometimes ridiculous policies. Those who don't heed the warning of the so-called hero are destined to die in an atomic bomb explosion. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

    Qui Etes-Vous Polly Magoo?
    Polly Dorothy MacGowan is a model who tells about her experiences when she is interviewed by a television crew in this offbeat satirical comedy. She dreams of a life with prince charming Sami Frey while contending with the lecherous advances of a whole string of men who constantly hit on her. Some spy spoofs and television satires are included in this the directorial debut of William Klein. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

    Le Couple Temoin
    The French Ministry of the Future announces that it has computer-selected a so-called "average" French couple, Jean-Michel and Claudine (Andre Dussolier and Anemone), and will use what it finds out from them to determine how to manage housing and other government programs in the future. Overnight, they become famous and are subjected to endless questions by government functionaries. Commercial forces interested in using them for marketing research also begin to hound them. The couple is kidnapped just as they begin to rebel against their exploitation. This gives the government just the excuse it needs to drop the whole program, which had begun to develop in some awkward directions. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
