Le Crocodile, (French pronunciation: ​[lə kʁokod̪il]) (literally « The Crocodile », in English), was a cancelled film project of the French director Gérard Oury, which would have starred Louis de Funès (in the first attempt of the project) or Peter Sellers (in the second attempt) in the main role.


Crochet (literally « Hook », in English) is the dictator of a South American (or a South European) country, where the economic meltdown, the deprivation of liberty and the rebellions are part of the daily lot. Suddenly, everybody betrays him : the Americans drop him, the money he hid in Switzerland disappears, and his wife has an affair with the chief of the country's police and wants to make his lover the new leader of the country. To regain his popularity, Crochet organizes false bombings against himself. But he doesn't know that his wife and her lover had prepared real attacks.

Planned cast


Gérard Oury thinks of a movie about the dictatorship after the success of his previous movie : The Mad Adventures of Rabbi Jacob, with Louis de Funès.
