After the huge success of THE RED BALLOON in this country Jack Lemmon bought the US distribution rights of Albert Lamorisse's next film VOYAGE EN BALLON. But instead of releasing a dubbed version here he hired Broadway veteran S. N. Berhman to write a script & re-recorded the film's soundtrack with himself reading this script. Berhman's script takes away all the mystery from Lamorisse's little movie & negates its visual composition. Lemmon's cacophony throughly trashes Jean Prodromides' beautiful score. As a topper Berhman's script has references to adult sexuality (this in a children's movie) which are meant to be sophisticated & amusing but are not. Won't some one please give us the original?
