Great French Stars, 26 February 2005
Author: tophoca ( from Mersin 10 Turkey

O.K. there isn't really a plot as such but the film revolves around a French perfume by the name of boum. What we do get is the chance to see some of the all time great stars of France. Charles Trenet appears and sings two of his hits from the period. It is great to see Trenet at his prime and it helps one see why his career extended over six decades. Lucienne Delyle makes an all to brief appearance. Delyle was to die a few years later from leukemia. Edith Piaf, Annie Cordy, Juliette Greco all make appearances along with Gary Cooper and Gregory Peck, although quite why they were included is beyond me. A great platform for French stars of the 50s!
