Inept movie with a fun bunch of musical acts, TWO TICKETS TO PARIS served mainly as a vehicle for Joey Dee and the Starliters, who had become the twistingest group of musicians since Chubby Checker. The scant story line has Dee and Fraser on board the SS France en route to Paris, but both
end up with other mates. Film was shot in New York City and on the docked SS France. Dee and his group perform: "C'est Si Bon" (Jerry Sielen, Henry Betti), "Willy Willy," "This Boat," "Twistin' on a Liner," "Everytime" (Henry Glover, Joey Dee, Morris Levy), "Open Sea," and "Left Bank Blues"
(Glover, Dee, Levy). Other tunes include: "Instant Man" (Hal Hackady, Don Gohman), "Teenage Vamp" (Albert Seigal), "Baby Won't You Please Come Home?" (Charles Warfield, Clarence Williams), "The Lady Wants to Twist" (Jerry Leiber, Mike Stoller), "C'est La Vie" (Edward R. White, Mack Wolfson),
"Swingin' Shepherd Blues" (Rhoda Roberts, Kenny Jacobson, Moe Koffman), and "What Kind of Love Is This?" (Johnny Nash).
