Overview

Max (Robert Morley) is a wealthy, world-class conoisseur of fine food, who cannot stop himself from eating when the food is first-class. His doctor has given him stern warnings that he must lose over one hundred pounds, or he will die of heart failure. The presence of so many four-star chefs in Europe is a hazard for him. When many of these same chefs are found murdered in inventive ways, each related to the chef's specialty, it begins to appear that Max is the prime suspect in their deaths. Meanwhile, the ex-wife (Jaqueline Bisset) of a fast-food tycoon (George Segal) has earned the right to cook the dessert course at a dinner billed as "the world's most fabulous meal." Despite their profound disagreements, he is worried that she will be one of the murderer's victims.This film, which was loved by some critics and hated by others, is based on the best-selling novel Someone is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe by Nan and Ivan Lyons.

If curvaceous Jacqueline Bisset can cook as good as she looks in this hilarious comedy, she can fry my bratwurst, flambe my Bombe Alaska, make my Dim Sum and roast my Peking Duck anytime she wants. One of my favourite restaurants in Paris is featured here. It is of course, La Tour d'Argent, the temple of French gastronomy to which any gourmet worth his salt and pepper must visit...if only once in his life. Here, my friend, Claude Terrail, World War 2 veteran of the French Resistance presides daily at his table, which you have to pass before you enter the main dining area. The Specialite de la Maison, Canard a la Tour d'Argent also features prominently in this movie. Just watching it in the movie will make you drool with anticipation. This movie has everything I like in a movie, a voluptuous and alluring leading actress, great locations, humourous story and fabulous acting. Light hearted and most amusing, it will put you in a good mood for your Grand Marnier souffle or perhaps one of Morton's titanic 24 ounce Porterhouse steaks. A wonderful movie for Gourmets, gourmands and wine lovers. Bon appetit! By Dr. Michael Lim The Travelling Gourmet who is a well known Travel, Food & Wine Writer based in South East Asia.
