There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

Gary Cooper, who was perhaps a decade beyond his prime romantic lead years, plays an aging Lothario who enters a classic Lubitsch-style romantic pas de deux with the much younger Audrey Hepburn. Cooper’s self-assurance is ultimately no match for Hepburn’s adorable charm. Featuring Maurice Chevalier as Hepburn’s father and the City of Paris as itself.
