Léon, a humble civil servant, has the unusual ability to walk through walls, however thick they are. One day, he falls madly in love with a charming hotel thief by the name of Suzan. In order to impress her he poses as Garou-Garou, a dangerous gangster. Mistaken for him, he is arrested and sent to jail but he, of course, leaves his cell (and comes back to it) just as he likes, infuriating the prison warden. But, despite this wonderful gift, he remains shy in the presence of Suzan.

It’s not at all a “dubbing”, it’s the alternative English version, with a partially different cast than the French one. Jean Boyer directed both versions, filmed simultaneously, and there are many differences between the versions. For instance, neither Raymond Souplex (Gen-Paul in the French) nor Gérard Oury (the future director) appear in “Mr. Peek-a-Boo”.
