Seven English people visit Paris and get into various scrapes, melees, and pleasant situations in this episodic comedy. It moves from story to story and takes a little too much time between them, but some scenes are very funny indeed. Sim is a British peer and diplomat who needs to get

agreement on an economic plan from Russian Illing. The Soviet is recalcitrant until he and Sim get together for a night of serious drinking and the man says da instead of nyet. Rutherford is an aged artist who is delighted when she buys a copy of the "Mona Lisa"; Edwards goes to gay Paree and

spends the entire weekend tippling at a British bar (so he might as well have stayed in Soho); Bloom is a sweet young thing who is charmed by a French man-about-town; Shiner is a musician in a Marine band who pub-crawls through the fleshpots of Pigalle; Lane is a lovelorn lass who is stood up at a

restaurant and winds up with the waiter; and Copeland is a cliched kilted Scot who woos a Parisienne. Once again, Rutherford's husband, Davis, does a cameo (it may have been a codicil to all her acting contracts). It was a few years after this that the British Film Industry put its comedy hat on

and began to make some of the funniest films ever. This was not one of them, and parts of it are quite dull, but the movie still has enough humor to make it an amusing trifle. Rita Davison is sometimes credited with the script.
