A remake of Columbia's LET'S FALL IN LOVE (1934), SLIGHTLY FRENCH casts Ameche as the hard-driving director who forces his leading lady to a near breakdown and is thus promptly fired from the production. He comes across Brooklyn lass Lamour and creates the actress needed for the movie, via

a Pygmalion-type of transformation. The major talent this actress must possess is that of seeming to be French, and Lamour's convincing imitation soon gets Ameche his job back. And, of course, Lamour winds up falling in love with her egocentric coach. Director Sirk was far from home with light

entertainment of this nature, but he still approached the project with an earnest professionalism, which would see its rewards in later masterpieces. Songs include: "Fifi from the Folies Bergere," "I Want to Learn about Love" (sung by Lamour), "Night," "I Keep Telling Myself" (Lester Lee, Allan

Roberts), and "Let's Fall in Love" (Harold Arlen, Ted Koehler, sung by Lamour).
