Overview

Thanks to a bureaucratic blunder, the US State Department invites brassy showgirl Doris Day to attend a chi-chi arts festival in Paris. En route to the City of Light, Day falls in love with diplomat corps flunkey Ray Bolger (who's responsible for the error), even though he's married to witchy Eve Miller. 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 Bolger and Day 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!

Doris Day Collection 3.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
This is only about April in Paris, because I read the reviewer's brief description of it and it was completely wrong. I thought people deserved to have an accurate idea of the story. Ray Bolger is charming as a bumbling bureaucrat who just happens to have two beautiful women who want to marry him: the chorus girl he accidentally invited to Paris to represent American Theater and the ambitious daughter of his boss. He is not married: the marriage that turns out not to be valid is his secret elopement with Doris Day, leading to a funny effort on the part of their friend to prevent them from having a wedding night--a situation that one would never find in today's movies. April in Paris is cute and perfect for any lover of old romantic comedies.

This is a good DVD set for a Serious Doris Day Fan. Pure Escapism.
