Storyline

Richard Crenna introduces the film, "Made in Paris," by introducing his character, a fashion reporter, and the film's wardrobe. He takes us first to a fashion show, then introduces us to the film's costume designer, Helen Rose. She shows him sketches of dresses worn in the picture by Ann-Margaret and Edie Adams. We then see Ann-Margaret's wardrobe test. Crenna asks Rose to comment on the age-old question, do women dress for other women? Rose's answer is an emphatic no: she demonstrates with several scenes from the film in which Ann-Margaret's clothes are designed to catch and hold men's eyes. We see her with Chad Everett, Louis Jordan, and Crenna himself. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Promotional short for MGM's "Made in Paris"...
19 April 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

RICHARD CRENNA is the star of this MGM promotional short that concentrates mostly on Helen Rose's fashions that were created for ANN-MARGRET and EDIE ADAMS in the romantic "Made In Paris." Crenna narrates while the film shows an occasional clip from the film, which also gives us a glimpse of LOUIS JOURDAN and CHAD EVERETT.

It's strictly a by-the-numbers sort of dry commentary that seems to assume the viewer is fascinated by a look at women's costumes for the film.

Crenna does what he can to give a sense of humor to the whole thing, but it's a strain. His brief talk with designer Helen Rose is so scripted, it's painful to watch. Typical MGM gloss to push a product.
