Jacques Marin was a French actor (September 9, 1919 â€“ January 10, 2001) whose good command of the English language and his resemblance with the stereotypical Frenchman looks made a familiar face in some major American productions (Charade) and Disney movies (The Island at the Top of the World and Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo).
Herbie Goes to Monte Carlo (1977) was the third of a series of films made by Walt Disney Productions starring Herbie - a white Volkswagen racing Beetle with a mind of its own.
Tagline:The Love Bug turns the great race into a HERBIE-DERBY!Dean Jones returns as Jim Douglas, and is joined by 70s Disney stalwart Don Knotts as mechanic Wheely Applegate. Herbie takes part in the fictional Trans-France Race, from Paris to Monte Carlo. This race was (according to dialogue) the first for Douglas in twelve years, and would not be much of a "comeback" if he did not qualify first.
The Trans-France Race was clearly modeled on the world-renowned Monte Carlo Rally, and was apparently run in either 1976 or 1977, although no exact date is expressly stated in the film. Herbie, the "Love Bug", was one of the 18 cars that started the race (the precise number of competing cars in the race is also open to debate, though it is possible that twice as many race cars appeared in the movie).

To tie-in with the film, the novel was re-issued with the same title. There were several changes from the book to the film. The book was set in 1960, but the film is set in 1907. Extra characters are added to the book, as well as the use of the blimp.The film was produced by Walt Disney Pictures, and in a family based-package was accompanied by Winnie the Pooh..., http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0071671
