THE TALL BLOND WITH ONE BLACK SHOE (Le Grand blond avec une chaussure noire) was co-written (with Francis Veber) and directed by Yves Robert in 1972.
Bernard Milan, a director of the French special services, tries to implicate his chief colonel Toulouse in a scandal in order to get his position. The crafty Toulouse then imagines to trap Milan while directing his attention on somebody who could, according to Toulouse, uncover his role in the scandal. Also, the following day, Toulouse's right-hand man goes to the airport and chooses, randomly in crowd, a passenger -the violonist François Perrin- whom he openly will greet, under the eye of the spies of Milan.
The next days, Milan and his men will spend their time to follow Perrin, rummaging his apartment and his private life in order to find of which secret information the violonist is in possession. The naive Perrin, of course, won't notice a thing even though Toulouse's men and Milan's men start to shoot at each other just behind his back.
