A Delightful film
15 December 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

I first saw this film many years ago at the NFT.My fond recollections of this were reinforced when i saw it again as a result of its recent airing on TCM.It is a truly charming film.Although it is a quota quickie and most of the film in Paris is spent in the hotel suite it never feels very stagy.Laura La Plante is a true delight as the main lead and is well supported by Ian Hunter.Jane Carr as a femme fatale is a real hoot particularly in early scenes as Hunter's secretary.There are some very interesting exteriors early in the film featuring Piccadilly Circus and The Strand,by the Law Courts.Reassuring to know that some parts of London have not changed in the intervening years.It looks as if the scenes must have been taken from a hidden camera since no one seems to be aware of the camera.
