There exists a TV movie called “Les Pittuiti’s” shown on France channel one in 1959. Louisson Baumgartner & Eugene Vees are on screen at the beginning and the end playing. This was the story and script that became “Mon Pote le Gitan”, released in theaters that same year. Same director and screenwriter, but a different cast. Here is a still from the TV movie:
Any link I have found for this movie leads me back to “Mon Pote le Gitan”, or, (on the tribute website for the actor Giani Esposito who was in the TV film) leads to some stills and a reference to the archives of Ina.fr, where it is a dead end.
I searched through Djangobooks forum for a mention of this film, but could not find one. Any knowledge anyone has would be greatly appreciated, and would shorten my stay in this particular rabbit hole.
