Slightly French | Chicago Reader

Slightly French

A minor though enjoyable divertissement by the great melodramatist Douglas Sirk (All That Heaven Allows). His touch is evident in the spatially complex set design, and if you wanted to push things I suppose you could say that this story of a Hollywood director (Don Ameche) trying to pass off all-American Dorothy Lamour as his latest continental discovery embodies Sirk's theme of the universally ersatz. By why bother? It's a surprisingly chipper 80 minutes. With Janis Carter and Adele Jergens (1949).
