"Don't Touch The White Woman!" is a
1974French/Itallian farce, an absurd "Western" set in Paris, with Marcello Mastroiannias a vain General George Armstrong Custer. Richard Nixonis the American president. Buffalo Bill Cody( Michel Piccoli) is here portrayed as a charlatan media impresario. Ugo Tognazzigives a fictional portrayal of Mitch Bouyerone of Custer's Native American scouts; who runs a curio shop selling Native artifacts made in sweatshops by white women. Alain Cunyplays Sitting Bullwho must defend his people when their homes (apartment buildings) are destroyed by the Union Cavalry. The the movie climaxes with the Battle of the Little Bighornheld in a large construction excavation where Les Hallesmarket used to be. The language used to justify the conflict parodies the Vietnam Warand the Algerian War.
