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

High class production in every way.
19 August 2009 | by See all my reviews

The picture and sound quality of this French language addition is quite good. By the quality of the production and direction I would say this was considered a first rate film in its day. The songs are quite catchy and the performers are obviously happy to be preforming and are giving it their all. I could hardly detect a flaw in the final musical number where everyone is lip sinking to a record off stage while half the band members are out searching for the baby. If you enjoy listening to songs from other countries that are not necessarily in your native tongue, you will find a lot to enjoy in this picture. There are cute musical numbers throughout. At one point the whole band sings to the baby in an attempt to get him to eat. I must say that Audrey Hepburn's makeup and lighting have something to be desired here. She is still beautiful but not flawless. She does not have the benefit of the long close-ups, and slow, deliberate lines that she does in "Roman Holidy" and she is not sweet and vulnerable as she is in "Young Wives Tale". She appears in four or five short scenes and for the most part speaks English when she does appear. Although a smattering of French is thrown in. She does not get a chance to win our sympathy, but it is interesting to watch her in this early film. She speaks quickly, sharply and runs in and out of scenes with verve. You can get an excellent copy of this film from cdjapan.
