Storyline

As they are waiting for a divorce, young movie star Malissa Farrell and famous pianist Rudy Walter have left their baby, Johnny, with a child minder in Le Vésinet. Marinette, the latter's daughter, who has been assigned to return the young Dubois to his parents, mistakes Johnny for the other kid. As she can't find Mr. and Mrs. Dubois, Marinette entrusts Max, Mrs. Dubois' father and the drummer in Ray Ventura's orchestra, with the care of the baby. Max, who must join the other musicians in Monte Carlo, where the band is due to play for the Jazz Festival, has no other choice but to rake the little one along with him. Written by Guy Bellinger

So many men and a baby.
30 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

Another musical by Jean Boyer featuring Ray Ventura "Et Ses Collégiens " (and his schoolboys ) the main purpose of which is to highlight the tracks which are part easy-listening jazz and part comedy songs :if the audience had forgotten it,lines at the end of the movie tell them that they were available on Polydor records;at the time when seeing artists perform live was rare ,it was a smart way to promote songs.

The films itself is rather pleasant,based on mistakes about a baby the orchestra has to care of and treats as their pet .....until so-called "mothers" appear;it's a bit repetitive but there are good gags: the "grandfather" kissing his grandson goodnight and realizing "he is cold " (because his daughter has replaced the toddler with a doll) or the orchestra,reduced to five members (whereas they are 18 in all),performing live on stage with the help of a record player.

Audrey Hepburn (you read well) appears in two or three scenes ,which may be the main reason why people would like to watch this harmless musical (the famous actress does not sing or dance,mind you)

Like this ? try this.....

"Nous Irons A Paris" (Boyer,1949)-feat also Ray Ventura and his band ,plus Philippe Lemaire,the romantic young lead of "Monte Carlo" and even a small appearance by George Raft.
