By the humble standards of Tiffany, a lot of money has been spent on this one to little avail, alas! The movie rates as disappointing, chiefly because of David Newell's lackluster and somewhat charmless performance. The role needed someone quirky but strong and self opinionated like James Cagney. Instead, we get minor actor and bit player, David Newell. True, heroine Anita Louise is a wow, and well deserves her premier billing. And the fiery Yola D'Avril is briefly glimpsed as Fifi. Mathilde Comont, on the other hand, has too large a part "large" in both senses of the word. Roy William Neill's direction is efficient but lacks his usual sparkle. Still, it was early days for him. Available on a very good Alpha DVD, accompanied by the splendid Clark and McCullough outing, Snug in the Jug.
