Director Walter Lang’s 1960 musical stars Frank Sinatra as a French attorney called François Durnais who talks his old judge buddy Paul Barriere (Maurice Chevalier) into trying to stop the gendarmes closing his girlfriend Simone Pistache (Shirley MacLaine)’s sexy can-can dancing bar and night club in 1896, Montmartre. But young ambitious judge Philippe Forrestier (Louis Jourdan) tries to put a spoke in the wheels by enforcing the official ban on can-can, getting the club closed and coming between the lovers. This is the film adaptation of Cole Porter’s attractive musical of 1890s Paris. The songs (many from Porter’s other shows) are still evergreen show tune gems: ‘I Love Paris’, ‘Let’s Do It’, ‘You Do Something to Me’, ‘C’Est Magnifique’ and ‘Just One of those Things’. A first-class iconic cast stroll amiably through the movie, Frank Sinatra, the biggest attraction with the charm of the true Frenchmen Jourdan and Chevalier, the young MacLaine’s pert cuteness, Juliet Prowse’s attractive dancing, Hermes Pan’s choreography and Irene Sharaff’s Oscar-nominated costumes see it through to considerable success. Nelson Riddle’s Oscar-nominated scoring is expectedly classy too. See it in original Cinemascope for it’s 60th Anniversary.
