Boulevard du Rhum Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This broad French comedy includes some affectionate parodies of silent film features. Corny (Lino Ventura) is the captain of a rum-running boat during the U.S. Prohibition era, which ended before talking pictures were introduced. In his spare time, he haunts his local cinema, and his favorite actress is the divine Linda (Brigitte Bardot). Through a series of accidents, he finally gets to meet her in the flesh, and woo her. Their romance is obstructed by his bosses and her other suitors, but they keep trying to spend time together. Finally, the demands of stardom intervene. Corny goes back to his boat and sighs over the movie screen as before. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
