Clio Goldsmith
19 March 2014 | by btm1See all my reviews

When I saw this film I'm pretty sure it was called "Le Cadeau" ("The Gift"), and IMDb listed it for many years as Le Cadeau. The "gift" was a surprise paid-for evening with an elite high-class call girl. It is given by his friends to a bank employee on his retirement. Clio Goldsmith plays the call girl, Joyane, who also uses the pseudonym Barbara.

Clio Goldsmith, a 25 year old German actress at the time this film was made, was one of the most stunningly beautiful women I'd ever seen. To my regret, she left the theater profession in 1985.

It's comedy of mistaken identities, but all I really remember is Clio Goldsmith. (I'm writing this more than 30 years after seeing the film!)
