Paris When It Sizzles


(out of 5)

Silly little comedy about a blocked film writer () whose new assistant () becomes his main inspiration.  They constantly come up with ridiculous little plots with which to pepper up his writing, and for our benefit the film actually plays all their imaginary scenarios out. In one of her few slapstick comedy roles, Hepburn absolutely shines, showing a new side to her wonderfully generous sense of humour. For that reason alone the film is worth watching, looking at her is entertainment enough, but there’s very little substance to be retained from the experience.
