The French Line

Film, Drama

Time Out says

Jane Russell shown 'flat' is perhaps an anatomical impossibility, but the film was originally made in 3-D, and most screenings nowadays will unfortunately prevent you from testing the accuracy of RKO's publicity teaser: 'It'll knock both your eyes out!' The woman who once gave Howard Hughes his greatest technical challenge plays a Texan tycoon who disguises herself as a model and goes to Paris to find a man unaware of her vast fortune. Enter Gilbert Roland as a French musical comedy star and the excuse for some song-and-dance routines that look like out-takes from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How to Marry a Millionaire.
