Innocents in Paris on IMDB

The film is a mild romantic comedy about a group of Britons flying out for a weekend in Paris in 1953. The character played by Margaret Rutherford is an amateur artist searching out the Mona Lisa in the Louvre; Claire Bloom is a young girl who finds romance with an older Frenchman (Claude Dauphin); Ronald Shiner is a military bandsman out on the tiles for the night; James Copeland is an archetypal Scotsman in kilt and tam o'shanter who finds love with a young French girl; Jimmy Edwards plays a hearty Englishman who spends the entire weekend in an English-style pub; and Alastair Sim is a diplomatist, trying to obtain a signed agreement with his Russian counterpart (Peter Illing).
The writer and producer was Anatole de Grunwald, born in Russia in 1910, who fled to Britain with his parents in 1917. He had a long career there as a writer and producer, including the films The Way to the Stars, The Winslow Boy, Doctor's Dilemma, Libel, and The Yellow Rolls Royce.
