Storyline

Paul Dover lives in Paris and works as an artist. He is visited by Julia Fraser an art buyer and critic who irritates Dover with her opinionated attitude. When she finally finds a piece of sculpture that she likes, he quotes a ridiculously high price which she refuses, but she is very intrigued with him and at least she leaves on a friendly note. But Paul's treatment of Julia is not usual for him. Earlier he had received an upsetting visit from his kid sister Ellen. She is married to a very wealthy man who is running for office and who, although he is in love with his wife, will not bear any scandal. Unfortunately, we learn, she is being blackmailed by a man who was her fiancé before she married her husband. She discovered him to be a cad, and she broke off the relationship. But he had saved her love letters to him, and now is demanding two hundred thousand francs from her or else he will publish her letters. She asks Paul to help, and he agrees. The result is that the letters end up ... Written by Jim Knoppow

Way too slow
25 September 2004 | by (Corrales, NM) – See all my reviews

Primarily a vehicle to showcase Ace the Wonder Dog and gowns by Renié. Premise of why the hero needs to pretend he is blind in order to gain access to museum is not sufficiently believable, especially when thieves figure out that all they need to do is get hired on as janitors in order to accomplish the same end. I find Richard Dix wooden in his delivery and cannot understand why Whitney Bourne would find him appealing. Eduardo Ciannelli is excellent as the thief. Richard Dix making an "iron" pancake in Paris could have been funnier as could have the thieves arguing over fifteen and twenty cents when blackmail is at stake. Not a great movie, but the premise could have been more interesting. Moves way too slow to really hold your interest.
