"Paris Holiday" is one of the few films that alternates first billing during the credits. Each of the four principle stars takes his/her turn at the top while the other three appear beneath them. The prolonged sequence begins and ends with Hope's name first. See more »
Anita Ekberg's the highlight here in a comedy that needed a real villain for Hope and French clown Fernandel to play off. Instead we get a bunch of black-suited Keystone cops types who chase Hope around for the last half-hour of the picture. Lots of weak slapstick stuff in zis veddy zilly French movie.
