| Good cast ... pretty-good movie
This is a pretty-darn-good World War II movie. The Germans take over the Ritz Hotel in Paris. Perry King has lived there for years (and, so, is allowed to stay). Later, he befriends Field Marshall Herman Goering; (after noticing that one of Goering's "valuable" paintings is a forgery), he gets hired as his art expert. Later, he gets pulled into the Resistance movement. At this point, the story gets dangerous for him (and continues to the end). Coco Chanel (Leslie Caron) becomes his close friend; he loves one of Coco's models. I enjoy David McCallum's role, as the weak-kneed son of the famed Ritz owner (who also gets involved in the Resistance).

It's a long movie (over 3 hours), so it fully paints each of the characters, and fleshes out the plot.
