Good to see that again.

If I remeber right she has been in another Louis de Funes movie (the one where he plays a writer who has to get rid of a corpse) and of course in 'Le Cerveau'.

That just broke my heart.

Thanks for posting that, Ben. What wonderful footage, and her whistle was just glorious. Never heard it before. And I guess I'll never hear it again.

That was great thanks for posting it, I will look at it a lot over the next few days. I never knew her as the France only the Norway, she looked better without the extra decks.

I stood on her forward upper decks once in Miami just before we departed and the horn sounded only a little ways behind me, it nearly caused me to jump off the ship it was so sudden and loud but that clip brought it back, thanks so much.

"Monsieur Jo", but has "France" really a part in this ? It has been a very long time I've seen it, and I only remember as reference to "France", the suitcase at the end with the sticker "France".

The director of "Le Cerveau", Oury, died only a few days ago. "France" is really glorious in it, though you can see more of the interiors in "Le Gendarme à New York". It is also a better movie than the Gendarme movie.

There is also an almost complete comic stripbook with a story on board "France" : Ric Hochet - Rapt sur le France. (I have it in Dutch, Rik Ringers, Gangsters op de France)

Did the "Norway" figure in some films, if only in a cameo role, as did Queen Mary in the '70s ?

I'm unaware of any films showing the NORWAY, except for the background in some episodes of "Miami Vice." And locally here in South Florida, there is still a TV commercial playing daily for City Furniture, which shows a quick flash of NORWAY leaving Government Cut on her way out to sea.

Regularly, the SS Norway was an 'extra' in the stock-footage used in Miami CSI.

That's "CSI: Miami", fella. There'l l be no Norway in tonight's season premiere because Horatio and Eric will be in Rio tracking down Marisol's killer. The episode was actually filmed in Rio rather than a studio back lot. According to the show's executive producer, the revenge killing will be gory but the scenery will be gorgeous

I wasn't aware that De Funès was actually known outside of France...
"Le Gendarme à New York" was reaired for the 1647th time (at least) last month on french TV M6.
I don't really like this movie but there are indeed very nice outside and inside views of the ship.
I particulary like the scene when they are lost in the corridors...

Nice clip, France looked so proud sailing out, doing what all ships should do, sailing through the seas.

True about Gendarmes, there were abit overlong and another 15' cut would make them OK.

The other ships in NY at the end of the clip are: MICHELANGELO (distinguished by her 1st Class Lido Bar), QUEEN MARY, and beyond that you can just see the funnel of Greek Line's OLYMPIA.
