Could it be something in the H/P 80 family?

Ane e-mail from Rene:

Yah, that does appear to be the same beastie, viewed from a different angle:

Hmm, the first (?) movie "Le Gendarme de Saint Tropez" with Louis De Funès was made in 1964. Then seems to have followed a number of follow-up movies:

"Le Gendarme à New York" (1965)
"Le Gendarme se marie" (1968)
"Le Gendarme en balade" (1970)
"Le Gendarme et les extra-terrestres" (1979)
"Le Gendarme et les gendarmettes" (1982)

I suppose the picture is from the last movie.

By the way, are these movies on re-run right now, maybe in Belgium or France? I just visited Bernaerts Music, and among their selections of new band music for the 2006 season, they have a bright march that carries the same title. I would assume it comes from the 1964 movie, but I haven't figured that out yet.

By the way, we had one or two Bull PCs in the computer club. If I recall correctly, they were 386 PS/2 compatibles. Bull or whoever owned the brand had a very long lasting support; I remember they compiled freeware to download binaries for well into 1998 or even longer.

Bull was aquired by Zenith sometime in the eighties, IIRC:

...or was it the other way around?
