Trivia

The airplane used is the Morane-Saulnier MS.755 Fleuret, a prototype French two-seat jet trainer designed and built by Morane-Saulnier. It failed to gain any orders but was developed into the larger four-seat MS.760 Paris. The one and only prototype was registered F-ZWRS, in the movie it is shown as F-WZHS. See more »

Light & Lovely Bardot!
20 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Brigitte Bardot sparkles in this lighthearted romp with Charles Boyer and looks great as always. Although I prefer her dramas and melodramas her romantic comedies are a filling dessert. She seems comfortable, relaxed, and appears to be having a fine old time. Boyer is always charming and an undervalued actor for many years.

A 6 out of 10. Best performance = BB. The music is annoying, especially the opening, but the color is great. All Bardot fans should seek this out (just for fun). I think Bardot is under-rated because few of her films are GREAT ART, but she holds her own with anybody and was always a treat for the eyes as well.
