Don't Touch the White Woman!

Movie Summary

Director:

Released:

Rating:
Not Available

Don't Touch the White Woman! is a 1974 film directed by Marco Ferreri which both parodies the style of American Western movies and acts as a biting criticism of the Vietnam and Algerian wars. In a surreal blend of the historical and the modern, the film is set in a 1970s France where Richard Nixon is president and General George Custer (Marcello Mastroianni) has declared war on the Indian population of Paris. Custer's Indian scout, Mitch (Ugo Tognazzi) leaves the comfort of his curio shop to join his fellow natives, led by Sitting Bull (Alain Cuny), in defense of their homes. Catherine Deneuve makes a smoldering appearance as Marie-H''l''ne de Boismonfrais, the pioneer woman who has designs on General Custer, and Buffalo Bill (Michel Piccoli) is a shifty media mogul with a fondness for show-tunes. Originally titled Touche Pas '' la Femme Blanche in French, this acerbic comedy is an absurd yet occasionally profound exploration of the atrocities of war.
