Film, Drama
Sinatra is the lawyer who defends the aesthetic merits of the can-can in the Paris of the 1890s in this vulgar and gaudy version of the Cole Porter musical. MacLaine and Prowse provide the dancing, while Jourdan and Chevalier inject Hollywood's idea of Gallic charm. The film has a small place in cinema history for being savaged by Nikita Khrushchev in the course of his visit to America. Terrible.
