Some Sparkle, But ....
27 February 2006 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

This romantic comedy about a rich young American who is trying to make a go at painting in Paris (John Loder) and a young woman who is trying to become a dress designer in the City of Lights (Nancy Burnes) owes whatever sparkle it possesses to its leading actors. Miss Burnes, in particular, is a bright and attractive screen presence whose career petered out four years afterward, while Loder wound up in Hollywood playing second leads.

Director Carol Reed, one of the great talents of the British film industry in the 1940s and 1950s can't do much with the script, which takes the plot twists and lets the audience in on them far too early. While the effect is not inept, it is not particularly interesting and is best viewed on a dull afternoon.
