While not a remake of "The Lady Eve" (That would be "The Birds and the Bees"), this starts off basically the same with a father and daughter pair of grifters (Ronald Squire and Peggy Cummins) showing up at a five star French hotel, pretending to be newlyweds, with Squire sneaking out in the middle of the night to pretend he's abandoned her so Cummins can fleece others in the hotel to get sympathy money. Along comes the handsome Terence Morgan who falls in love with Cummins and tries to help her, only for her to disappear on him. He goes on the search for her, only to find out that she's a reluctant part of a larger group of grifters.
Moderately amusing, this shows off the con artist as charming and urbane, and certainly, Squire and his cohorts are very amusing, and Cummins is a total sweetheart. This British comedy shows that love does conquer all, even in the most precarious of predicaments, and does have a few truly amusing moments, particularly with Sebastian Cabot as a French cab driver (Mr. French speaking French!) tired of hearing arguments over whether to stop the cab and keep going.
Marie Lohr and James Hayter are very amusing as other members of the Squire gang, stealing everything they share with Squire and Cummins. Morgan, unfortunately, is bland, showing that a handsome face doesn't indicate screen magic. Good location footage does help a bit, but like the winding curves of the French waterside roads, this becomes a bit perplexing to retain total interest after a while, making me quickly long for it to conclude.
