Trama e commenti: cinematografo.it - film.spettacolo.virgilio.it - film.tv.it - mymovies.it: «Nei sogni del piccolo Robert, scolaro distratto, la storia del re Dagoberto assume caratteri casalinghi: i personaggi storici hanno tratti familiari e le vicende stesse sono adattate a misura quotidiana».

Allowing his imagination to run wild, Robert sees his father as a benign Dagobert, a king whose main preoccupations are collecting wives and securing his place in history. Dagobert’s plans to crown his son at Reims are threatened by his scheming rival, Charibert, who has regal ambitions of his own... Although nearing the end of his remarkable film career, comic actor Fernandel still had what it took to enliven a lacklustre comedy and draw a large cinema audience. Le Bon roi Dagobert is a schoolboy’s comic book reinterpretation of history, in much the same vein as the earlier Fernandel offering François Premier (1937). Shot in Rome, the film has some impressive production values, but it should have been made in colour and its cast – which includes some very talented actors – deserve a far better script. Popular Italian actor Gino Cervi stars along side Fernandel...» (James Travers).
