Bebe and Ben in Their Final Film
13 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In a sequel to LIFE WITH THE LYONS (1954) Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon star in their final film, one based on their British radio and TV series.

For their 24th wedding anniversary, Ben and Bebe pack up their household and go to Paris where they get involved in a series of misadventures involving a blonde French revue star.

Again Bebe Daniels and Ben Lyon are breezy and fun as heads of the family. Barbara and Richard are also quite good. Martine Alexis plays the French star.

The two films helped launch the Lyons on a successful TV career.

Between them, Ben and Bebe appeared in more than 300 films!
