The French Line (8-Feb-1954)

Director: Lloyd Bacon

Writers: Mary Loos; Richard Sale; Matty Kemp; Isabel Dawn

Music by: Josef Myrow

Producer: Edmund Grainger

Keywords: Romantic Comedy, Musical, Cruise, 3D

On a cruise, oil heiress Mame Carson swaps identities with a fashion model, because it seems that men are being scared off by her money. Condemned for "immorality" by the National Catholic Legion of Decency; banned in Chicago by the Police Commissioner as "especially harmful to youth." But the film itself is quite tame. Compare The Richest Girl in the World (1934), which has nearly the same plot.
