When i was 12, i saw all the films of LE GENDARME DE SAINT TROPEZ, with the french actor LUIS DE FUNÈS.
That films were very comic... he was a great actor during the 60's and the 70's.
One of those films of the "GENDARME" was titled LE GENDARME A NEW YORK (the gendarme in new york). This film talks about a police station that is going to new york to participate in a seminar... and a lot of "nice" things will happen during the trip to new york. A very comic film...
And.. in one of the legs of the trip, they are going from NICE to PARIS, to take the train to the transatlantic FRANCE (till last month the longest ship in the world... 315 meters, now is Queen Mary 2 with 345 meters) to new york; and the trip from NICE to Paris was made on a CARAVELLE III, the F-BHRN, the GASCOGNE. I didn't knew the plate of the plane, so i have to see all Air France caravelles on the database... one by one... and here he is!
