Quotes

Victor Chandebisse: My ingenious friend suggests that this young innocent girl relied as a murder weapon solely on a large plateful of snails. Members of the jury, would you believe that a true daughter of France could ruin the flavour of one of our great, national dishes by so much as a grain of Arsenic?

fun (but typical) bedroom farce
3 March 2014 | by ksf-2See all my reviews

The costumes and special effects help make this fun -- the bright purple and green pastels make it look like a technicolor explosion.... IMDb says its Panavision. Lots of slapstick humor and mis-understandings, the typical bedroom farce. ( I LOVE the couple eating a full dinner in bed! ) Rex Harrison plays Victor Chandebisse, this coming just after My Fair Lady and Doctor Doolittle, so he was probably ready for something less intense. Of course, his NEXT film would be Staircase.... which was something MUCH more different. Watch it if you can catch it. Also Louis Jourdan on the prowl. I didn't really know Rosemary Harris (plays Mrs. Chandebisse); it looks like she was nominated for an Oscar in 1995! was also in the Spiderman films. This fun film runs like an episode of Three's Company, but everyone is having a good time, and its a great way to spend an hour and a half. Complete with a nephew with a speech impediment, and appearances by foreigners. I don't usually like period pieces, but this one is quite enjoyable. Directed by French director Jacques Charon.
