"In Paris, everything is changeable."
21 December 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been catching some of these Ford Television Theater offerings on the Antenna TV cable channel lately, and to say they're extremely simplistic is probably an understatement. There's no way this story holds up with any credibility at all, as newspaper man Danny Doyle (Jack Carson) is left perplexed why no one remembers him the very next day after he shows up at a Paris hotel, having run into World War II buddy Nick Granada (John Beradino) who saved his life during the war. Both the hotel register and a bar tab that Doyle signed are significantly altered when Doyle sees them a second time, but how could that have happened? There's just no accounting for it, and if this were 'The Twilight Zone' I guess one could make a case for it, but it wasn't.

Well it turns out Nick is using an assumed name of a courier who's found murdered, and he's involved in a million dollar pharmaceutical deal gone wrong. Doyle realizes right from the get go that Nick's hiding something because Nick hands him a cigarette lighter with the initials HB on it. After the real HB - Henry Baralt is found dead, Doyle get his hands on the lighter courtesy of the French police investigator on the case! What? In what universe is this possible?

None of this passes any kind of reality test, but I did get a kick out of Danny's bar tab when he signs for drinks - a dollar fifty for a cognac and a dollar seventy five for a Scotch on the rocks! Today, add a zero at the end for each of those. And if you're not too distracted by that, take a good hard look at the actor portraying Nick Granada - he's an absolute dead ringer for a young Robert DeNiro!
