Whether it was Lemmy Caution or Jeff Gordon, Eddie Constantine made a few years before Sean Connery, which the latter would make as James Bond. And in black and white, not in full color. They didn't had the money of Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli. They could not afford to wander through so many exotic countries (again, the budget did not allow...) so, they walked only inside France, Cote d'Azur, Paris region, etc. They did not use Aston Martin or Sunbeam Alpine, but Citroen, Peugeot, Renault or American cars, because himself (Caution or Gordon) was on the payroll of the FBI not The MI5. That made America great then, in the 50s and 60s. Instead of drinking Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred, they had pure Whisky, without soda, direct from the bottle. Guy Lefranc was another good French craftsman of the 7th art, specialized in the comedy-policier genre. He had worked before with Eddie Constantine in "Keep Talking, Baby"(1961)Cause toujours, mon lapin (original title). Later he would continue in the same note with Gerard Barray in movies like "Sale temps pour les mouches" and "Beru and these Women"(1968) Beru et ces dames (original title).
