  • Frank Sinatra and Shirley Maclaine star in this extravagant reproduction of the Cole Porter stage musical about 1890s Paris. Loosely adapted from the original, the film follows the efforts of French lawyer Franois Durnais (Sinatra) to prevent the police from closing down the club owned by his girlfriend, Simone Pistache (Maclaine), because the venue features the prohibited cancan dance. Although Durnais has the support of Judge Paul Barriere (Maurice Chevalier), policeman Phillippe Forrestier (Louis Jourdan) is determined to raid the place. On a reconnaissance mission, the resolute cop falls head over heels for Pistache, who isn't interested but sees in Forrestier an opportunity to force Durnais' hand into marriage. Among these Machiavellian machinations stands a bevy of fine Cole Porter songs and some excellent dance routines, including a performance of the cancan in front of a French judicial inquiry. Sinatra and MacLaine add their prodigious charisma and flair to director Walter Lang's lively Parisian romp.
