Kay Denham is off for a 'fling' in Paris, leaving her staid suitor Berk behind. There, she meets two new suitors, Gene and George. Gene smooth-talks her into a junket to Switzerland, but George (with no illusions about his friend) appoints himself chaperone. Through a series of slapstick winter sports, Kay remains puzzled about George's disapproval of Gene...but there's a reason. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Charming movie and luckily it's now available on DVD
9 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

'I Met Him in Paris' 1937, is a seldom seen movie from Hollywood's Golden Age period. It was recently released as part of 'The Claudette Colbert Collection' on DVD. This is a lighthearted romantic/comedy that's easy to watch and just might leave a smile on your face.

The charm comes from Claudette Colbert. I can't think of another actress who combines classiness with effervescent charm so easily as Claudette Colbert does. The movie moves along at a good pace, holding the viewers attention. One of the nicest aspects of the film is that the outdoor scenes were actually shot outdoors, in Sun Valley. The production values and set design is amazing. Especially when you consider many other movies of the period were being filmed for a 'dime' and in a 'week'.

Pay close attention to Claudette Colbert, here's one of the silver screens truly great actresses. Especially in scenes such as the one where Robert Young confesses his love for her. Her facial expressions and body language is very believable. Watch her eyes, as an actress she is clearly believing the scene herself.

Some of the stunts done in the movie are hard to image that they are not film magic. When Claudette is on the bobsled track with a speeding bobsled coming at her and see can't get out of the way...that's her on a real track with a real bobsled flying by her. Same goes for Robert Young's scene where he has crashed into a small ravine on the mountain side while skiing and other skiers are actually jumping over him.

Simply put, this is a quality film with very believable acting and sets.

This movie has it all for the classic film buff.
