Cloris Leachman in France
28 June 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

American photographer Cloris Leachman (as Rita Wallace) is on assignment in France, looking for faces to photograph for her magazine. Suffering from inexplicable headaches, Leachman says she he wants to capture "the spirit of the country." The mysterious Marcel Dalio (as Jean Gabot) shows up quite suddenly, in her apartment; and, Ms. Leachman assumes he's one of the French models promised by landlady Ann Codee (as Madame Morel). She's wrong, of course… Finding post-"Lassie" dramatic work, Leachman is wonderful. But, the story is amusingly predictable... to a fault.

**** The Dark Room (2/10/59) John Newland ~ Cloris Leachman, Marcel Dalio, Ann Codee
