Storyline

With no contract in view, Aimé Barelli, the leader of the band of the same name, decides to take a holiday. As this is the Holy Year, the young artist accepts to follow his mother on a pilgrimage to Rome. His band members - complete with their agent - decide to follow suit. Good idea because on the train to Rome, there is a whole class of charming schoolgirls, including charming Rosita and - surprise ! - Nicole, Aimé's pretty but elusive beloved. The trip is cheerful but eventful and life gets even more complicated with the interference of Duranval, a fake talent agent but genuine trouble shooter. At a time confusion is such that a bomb explodes and the whole gang find themselves in ... heaven! But Saint Peter has pity on them and sends them back to earth. At long last Aimé can marry Nicole while his musicians spread mirth around them; Written by Guy Bellinger

For the plot summary,see above ...

A French oldies specialist wrote me he called it a day after ten minutes,and it's sure easy to see why."Les Joyeux Pélerins" is a nothing story the purpose of which is to hear musician Aimé Barelli and his orchestra every five minutes.The plot which even steals from "heaven can wait" , is an appalling hotchpotch featuring a pilgrimage to Roma (the musician's old mother' s vow) ,a vague mystery (some members of the band disappear from the palace where they stay) ,a bland love interest between the conductor ,his unbearable singer and two ingenuous ,fresh from the convent.A good dose of narcissism makes this movie unwatchable today,except for fans of the musician.
