|Title||:||Le mille-pattes fait des claquettes|
May 1943, occupation. Goering has decided to transfer Milo's Venus from the Louvre to Berlin. Three young people, Francis (Roger Mirmont), Jacques (Francis Perrin) and Henri (Jean-Jacques Moreau) decide to thwart the plans of the German Marshal. Their goal is to remove the famous statue and hide it from Francis' uncle, Monsieur de Beaugency (Michel Galabru), who owns a castle in Brittany. They steal the Venus at the Louvre and arrive at the uncle's, not without having had trouble starting with French gendarmes, a German officer, the police of the two countries and even the Resistance, of which a network seizes the Venus believing that 'It is a case of parachuted weapons. At uncle's things are further complicated, the castle is occupied by a German general staff, and the statue is found in the car of an SS general. To take it back they disguise themselves as German soldiers but they are unmasked and chased. They however flee miraculously with their precious case and arrive, by chance, on the English coasts. The Venus de Milo will go to the British Museum and they will be incorporated into the Free French Forces to thank them for their courageous initiative.
