Rex Harrison wakes up in a hospital in Paris with a bullet wound in his head. The last thing he remembers is leaving from Gatwick on his private plane. However, the police show his a newspaper which indicates he has spent TEN DAYS IN Paris. As he investigates on his own, it turns out he has spent the time as a butler/chauffeur to an eccentric family there under a different name. Gradually, the situation grows more serious....

This is an excellent comedy thriller, directed by old comedy hand Tim Whelan -- he had spent time writing for Harold Lloyd in the 1920s. His light touch and frequent gag construction, Harrison's breezy insouciance and a well-constructed story line keeps this one humming along. Harrison's career was on the upswing and he was credited about the title on the print I saw -- an Australian print, so it might have appeared in Oz after his success in NIGHT TRAIN TO MUNICH had made him a star. It's a minor picture, but one that is highly enjoyable.
