After World War II, a Highland Regiment's acting Commanding Officer, who rose from the ranks, is replaced by a peace-time Oxford-educated Commanding Officer, leading to a dramatic conflict between the two.
To learn a thing or two about the eternal game of love, the grizzled Scottish gentleman, Colonel Sir Edgar Fraser, decides to take his immature son, John, on a trip to marvellous Paris, to show him the ropes. There, a very welcome surprise awaits, as the Frasers meet their ideal romantic partners: the young and fresh Parisian belle, Lisette Marconnet, and the charming ageing widow, Sylvia Gilbert. However, as light-hearted infatuation gives way to deeper feelings, both father and son devise secret plans to marry the other off. Will things work as planned?Written by
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.
