Storyline

Trivia

The airplane that is shown as being the type that Stu flew to Paris is a Lockheed Constellation. The last Constellation was manufactured a year before this episode, in 1958. Lockheed didn't have another passenger plane until the introduction of the L-1011 Tri-Star three engine jet in 1972. The L-1011 was Lockheed's last venture into commercial aviation. See more »

Adventures in Paris
10 November 2015 | by GUENOT PHILIPPESee all my reviews

Entertaining light story told here, where a missing girl motivates our detective - not the same if you compare to the previous episode that took place in Hong Kong - to investigate. The girl's father seems to deal here with a kidnapping case. You have here a sweet french Paris atmosphere with the accordion music and cellar restaurants of Saint Germain des Prés arrondissement of Paris. And not forget the beautiful French gal with the unavoidable accent. Clichés among clichés...But why not? Ida Lupino seems to have found much pleasure directing this episode where Paris atmosphere is quite good in the production design. I have not much to say about it.
