Funny with historical interest
9 April 2008 | by (Bordeaux France) – See all my reviews

A rather funny movie; the plot is not very important with the trivial love affair between a poor journalist and the girl of a rich banker and others anecdotes. The movie largely depends on good actors (Michel Simon is delightful)and witty dialogs. In fact, the most interesting thing is that the action takes place on the famous french liner Normandie, with good views of the decks, swimming pool and art deco furniture and decoration. But, it's difficult to be sure that the whole film was effectively made on the Normandy. Also, beautiful sights of Manhattan in the 30' and the international exhibition of 1939 (french pavilion).
