The Goose of Sedan (German: Die Gans von Sedan) is a 1959 French-West German comedy war film directed by Helmut Käutner and starring Hardy Krüger, Jean Richard and Dany Carrel. It was based on the novel Un Dimanche au Champ D'Honneur by Jean L'Hôte. The film was one of a growing number of co-productions between the two countries during the era.[1] It was also released under the alternative title Without Trumpet or Drum.

The film was shot at the Billancourt Studios in Paris. The film's sets were designed by the art director Serge Piménoff.


After the Battle of Sedan during the Franco-Prussian War a pair of soldiers, one French and one German, become separated from their respective units. Taking shelter in a farmhouse, the two begin to bond despite their rivalry over a woman.
