Fanfan la Tulipe by Christian-Jaque( Visual )

40 editions published between 1951 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charming rogue Fanfan flits from one adventure to the other after evading marriage by joining the army in the midst of the Seven Years' War. He's motivated less by patriotism than by a consultation with Adeline, a voluptuous phony fortuneteller who promises that he will find glory in the army, even win the hand of King Louis XV's daughter. Herself the daughter of a recruiting sergeant, Adeline is a charlatan, but the irrepressible Fanfan sets about fulfilling his "destiny," even as his would-be soothsayer finds herself falling in love with him. Flirting and fighting, trouble reliably finds Fanfan, who just as reliably evades it

Aware of Jérôme 's machinations, and seeing an opportunity for revenge, Jean-Jacques offers François work as a set designer with his ballet company.
