1964 outing for Wm Holden and Audrey Hepburn
- Paris When It Sizzles review by BN
Madcap story of Holden the scriptwriter tasked with delivering a script to exacting producer Noel Coward in 19 weeks but he's been goofing off, boozing mainly, until a critical 48 hours before Coward appears in Paris on Quatorze Juillet (Bastille Day) expecting a completed screenplay. Hepburn is the secretarial temp who helps writer Richard Benson (Holden) to imagine loads of different scenarios for his script ranging from spies to vampires to costume balls to international safecrackers & the Mafia, to virtually....anything! All supposedly under the title of the Girl Who Stole The Eiffel Tower.
Frank Sinatra sings a short intro theme song and Marlene Dietrich does a beautifully coiffed tiny cameo getting out of a Rolls and going into the Dior Boutique, although costumes in this were provided by Givenchy. A young suave Tony Curtis has quite a big role, yet is uncredited.
Had never heard of, or seen it before, but it's sorta fun and worth a gander.
