Six Hours to Lose (French: Six heures à perdre) is a French romance film from 1946, directed by Alex Joffé, written by Alex Joffé and Jean Lévitte, starring André Luguet. The film was starred by Louis de Funès. The film based on the novel of Robert Brasillach, with the same title Six heures à perdre, edited posthumously in 1953.[1]


A traveller is stuck in an unknown town because his connecting train will only arrive in six hours. He decides to kill time by taking a stroll. He is not prepared to get confused with somebody else. In fact the citizens are eagerly awaiting the visit of a famous man and the clueless traveller is his doppelgänger. Soon he experiences what that means.
