April in Paris Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Thanks to a bureaucratic blunder, the US State Department invites brassy showgirl [[Performer~P17533~Doris Day~dorisday]] to attend a chi-chi arts festival in Paris. En route to the City of Light, [[Performer~P17533~Day~dorisday]] falls in love with diplomat corps flunkey [[Performer~P7128~Ray Bolger~raybolger]] (who's responsible for the error), even though he's married to witchy [[Performer~P49223~Eve Miller~evemiller]]. The marriage turns out to be invalid, clearing the path for a happy ending. None of the songs in April in Paris are worth remembering, though the dancing by [[Performer~P7128~Bolger~raybolger]] and [[Performer~P17533~Day~dorisday]] is well up to the standards of both performers. The romantic scenes, however, fail to hold up: after all, we're talking The Scarecrow and the World's Oldest Virgin here! ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
