But NotA Film To Remember
28 October 2012 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This film is very similar to Innocents In Paris.Both films have a similar concept.A group of English males going to a foreign country,France,and having various adventures,which in each case entails one of the group falling in love.The problem is that by and large the stories aren't particularly interesting in themselves.indeed the most laughable story concerns Bill Owen who decides to enlist in the foreign legion because everybody calls him shorty.There is a brief reference back to the women at home.Donald Sinden's girlfriend finds him too straitlaced so she teams up with a GI who will take her dancing.Sinden meanwhile is romancing a Frech girl.It is all very forgettable.incidentally watch Stanley Holloways headgear.At one time he is wearing a white floppy hat and then without warning it changes into a beret.
