Available on iTunes
A classic comedy featuring a varied collection of British tourists away on a wild and wonderful weekend in Paris in 1953, where each character finds that the city welcomes them and changes their lives in different ways. An English diplomat (Alastair Sim) is on a working trip to obtain an agreement with his Russian counterpart; a Royal Marine bandsman (Ronald Shiner) has a night out on the tiles after winning a pool of the French currency held by all the Marines in his band; a young woman (Claire Bloom) is wined and dined by an older Parisian man (Claude Dauphin) who gives her a tour of Paris; an amateur artist (Margaret Rutherford) searches out fellow painters on the Left Bank and in the Louvre; a hearty Englishman (Jimmy Edwards) spends the entire weekend in an English-style pub; an archetypal Scotsman and Battle of Normandy veteran (James Copeland) finds love with a young French woman. Also featuring cameos from Kenneth Williams and Christopher Lee. Directed by Gordon Parry.
