Directed by Gerd Oswald
Comedy legends Bob Hope (My Favorite Brunette) and Fernandel (The Little World of Don Camillo) team up in the comedy classic Paris Holiday. Hope plays Robert Hunter, an actor traveling to Paris to purchase a screenplay, only to find himself mixed up with counterfeits. While Hunter has his eye on diplomat Ann McCall (Martha Hyer, House of 1,000 Dolls), a sexy spy named Zara (Anita Ekberg, Boccaccio ’70) has her eye on the screenplay. Hope produced the film and wrote original story, the screenwriting duty went to longtime Hope collaborator Edmund Beloin (The Lemon Drop Kid) and Dean Riesner (Dirty Harry). Top-notch direction by Gerd Oswald (A Kiss Before Dying) and featuring prominent filmmaker Preston Sturges (The Lady Eve, The Palm Beach Story) in a wonderful supporting role.
