An extremely dull affair
31 December 2013 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

There are a number of British films from the 1950s about Brits going on holiday to France.most of them are shot in black and white,studio bound with average casts.However this film is different in that it is shot in colour with Alec Guiness starring and is clearly shot in Paris.One other difference the films in black and white were entertaining but this one is dreadfully dull.You get the impression that the producers were relying a bit too much in the different personality traits of the French as if France is an exotic country despite being only 21miles away.The Eastman Colour photography is very pleasant and that is about as good as it gets for this rather dull affair.
