John Loder,a romantic leading actor?Don't make me laugh!
For some reason John Loder played romantic leading men in his screen career in Britain.this notwithstanding the fact that a tree in Hyde Park could out act him.Maybe it was due to the fact that his father was a General.In this film he tries his best to convince that he is a struggling artist down on his luck in Paris whereas he is in fact the son of a millionaire.By coincidence bother father and son have eyes on a pretty young fashion model.This only becomes known to all the parties when they meet about two thirds the way through.The ending is fairly predictable.Carol Reed,in his debut as a director,is unable to do much with the lacklustre script,so this film barely rises above the mediocre at the best of times.Compare this for example with "A Girl Must Live" made a couple of years later when he was getting up a full head of steam.
