Storyline

One night socialite banker Baron Cassini attends the stage show of Eugene Charlier, who resembles him and imitates him in his act. The Baron is attracted to Charlier's jealous stage partner Mimi, while Eugene has similar ideas about Baroness Genevieve. When financial reverses lead to the Baron's disappearance, his frantic partners enlist Charlier to impersonate him; Mimi picks that night to take the Baron up on his invitation; and that's just the beginning...

Trivia

The French version ("L'homme des Folies Bergère") was shot simultaneously with the English version. Ensemble scenes were probably shared by both versions, but because of the major cast and crew changes, it is considered a separate film. See more »

It's fun seeing all three
3 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Fox Movie Channel showed all three versions of this story today starting with "That Night In Rio" then "On The Riviera" and ending with "Folies Bergere" I live Danny Kaye and Don Ameche so I won't pick a favorite I just like the idea of seeing different versions of the same film all at once.I also love old movies so this one was enjoyable too. Great musical numbers.No one misses the old movie houses more than me it's just not the same watching the films from the 30's,40's and 50's etc on VHS or DVD.My wish would be to have a bunch of same titled movies run on the same day in an old theatre and then turn up the lights and talk about them.This one is a great start.
