Sometimes the lazy days of summer allow you to watch some old movies on the tele. If the cricket isn't on, which is almost always it seems.
Recently I caught a movie called Made in Paris. Starring the lovely Ann-Margaret, it is your typical girl goes to Paris, and finds fun, fashion and adventure before finding love kind of flick.
That covered British bobby hat has to be seen to be believed
it barely fits in the shot most of the time
Sadly this was not to be. Made in Paris was most definitely not made in Paris. There was an occasional second or two of stock footage that didn't match the movie film, and an even rarer outside shot by an obvious painting of a Seine waterfront.
The internal building shots were more convincing, although "like other Pasternak films, Made in Paris, featured a lavish backlot version of a European locale, in this case Paris." Perhaps it passed as Paris in 1966, but it certainly doesn't now.
