Male Hunt(French: La chasse à l'homme, Italian: Caccia al maschio) is a 1964 French-Italian comedy film directed by Édouard Molinaro and starring Jean-Paul Belmondo.
It is the day that Antoine (Jean-Claude Brialy), a Paris advertising man, is to marry the lovely Gisèle (Marie Laforêt) and his best man Julien (Claude Rich), a divorced statistician, tries to talk him out of it with tales of the hard times he had from women, ending in entrapment by his stunning secretary Denise (Catherine Deneuve), a professional virgin. Going into a bistro for a quick drink before they drive to the wedding, the owner Fernand (Jean-Paul Belmondo), a retired villain and pimp, tells the two of his exploits that ended in marriage to pretty but pushy Sophie (Marie Dubois). Antoine decides to run for it, taking one of the tickets for the honeymoon in Greece and giving the other to Fernand. On board ship, he falls for the delectable Sandra (Françoise Dorléac), a professional confidence woman, who cleans him out of his money but in the end agrees to marry him. Fernand comes back with an old millionairess, former brothel owner, who drives a Rolls. At the wedding of Antoine and Sandra, Julien falls for a sweet brunette.
