But what if Millicent starts to fancy planted chauffeur John instead, and Gaspar takes a shine to Etienne's secretary Janine? Written by

When the estate agent shows the villa to M.Pimm she quotes the monthly rental at 7,500,000 francs. In 1963 at the exchange rate of 4.901 francs to the US dollar that would be the equivalent of 1.53 million US dollars per month. In 1963 that villa may have been valued at 1.53 million but would hardly have rented for that much. Up to the introduction of the Euro EUR, many French people still counted in and spoke in "anciens francs." So 494 anciens francs were worth 4,94 nouveaux, or the number of anciens francs divided by 100. The "nouveau franc" was introduced on 1 January 1960. In this case 7.5M anciens francs would equal 75,000 nouveaux francs or $15,303, a much more reasonable amount. See more »
A delightful comedy with many great actors doing fun things
I have remembered this movie for many years, and would like to own a copy of it in any media. I wonder why I can never find a VHS tape of it? I enjoyed it immensely because of all the great stars in it. It was a fun movie, set in a beautiful place, with many comical situations. Telly Savalas was quite a surprise and Ricardo Montalban was also excellent in this comedy. Charles Boyer was the master, of course. I wish I could see it again, if only for all the wonderful actors, to be enjoyed having fun. I had fun with them, laughing and loving what they had done.
