Fanfan la Tulipe by Christian-Jaque ( Visual )
34 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in 6 languages and held by 321 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

Impresario Jean-Jacques Sauvage returns to his home town of Lyons, ostensibly to stage a new ballet production, but as he renews old acquaintances it is evident that he has darker motives in mind. He receives a cold reception from Jérôme Nisard, a driven businessman who is in severe financial difficulty. Twenty years ago, Jérôme shot Jean-Jacques to prevent him from marrying his sister. To save his business from ruin, Jérôme intends to marry his son François into a wealthy family, but François, an impetuous dreamer, has other plans. Aware of Jérôme 's machinations, and seeing an opportunity for revenge, Jean-Jacques offers François work as a set designer with his ballet company. Within no time, François pursues a passionate love affair with one of the dancers. Needless to say, Jérôme is outraged by this turn of events, but predictably, Jean-Jacques refuses to intervene. Revenge can be very sweet
