Rutherford's Charm Carries Film
26 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

Carnival in Paris (1937)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Charming short from MGM about a janitor (Henry Brandon) working in an Egytology department who finds a poor girl (Ann Rutherford) hiding from the police. The two strike up a friendship when she asks to get dressed up in some of the museum costumes to have some fun. CARNIVAL IN Paris is pretty much like countless other MGM shorts in that it mixes light comedy with romance and music. Two of those three things work pretty well here but I must admit that I thought the three music numbers were pretty forgettable and I think the film would have been much better without them. The music numbers are pretty bland but the chemistry between Brandon and Rutherford is actually very strong and the two of them make this film worth sitting through. I thought the film had some pretty funny stuff early on dealing with a mummy inside the museum and especially the sequence where the two adults first "hear" one another. The romance is done in a believable way but it's the chemistry that really works. Fans of Rutherford will certainly enjoy her charming performance here.
