The Women in Red

Un éléphant ça trompe énormément (1976) (English: An Elephant Can Be Extremely Deceptive) aka Pardon Mon Affaire was remade by actor/director Gene Wilder as The Woman in Red (1984). The original French screenplay was co-written by Yves Robert whose spy spoof The Tall Blond Man With One Black Shoe (1972) was also turned into The Man With One Red Shoe (1985) starring Tom Hanks. I've always had a soft spot for Wilder's The Woman in Red (featuring Gilda Radner's best screen performance), but the similarities below are quite conspicuous.
