Every weekend for years
16 June 2005 | by roneill-4See all my reviews

Channel 13 in LA in the late 50s and 60s only had three movies that were rotated weekly and this was one of them. The other two were "Norman Conquest" (the name of a 50s British detective) and "Warlock" (an awfully boring 50s Western).

"Fresh from Paris" was made at The Moulin Rouge in Hollywood and took place totally inside that nightclub, which by that time (1956) was well past its glory days. The movie is so stupid and the "production numbers" so bad, it might be worth seeing it just to get depressed. It was probably a vanity production made by someone who "always wanted to make a movie" and wanted to have "chorus girls" in it. It makes "Ladies of the Chorus" (1948, with Marilyn Monroe playing the daughter of fellow stripper Adele Jergens) seem like Shakespeare.

The only humor I remember from this waste of film is the back view of a woman wearing a dress with only a front to it above the waist. Little did the people connected with this movie know that in a few years it would really come true.

All in all, an absolutely terrible mess.
