The first of British director John Guillermin's two 1952 offerings was Song of Paris. Dennis Price stars as stomach-pill sales representative Matthew Ibbetson, who goes to Paris to close a business deal. While taking in the sights, Ibbetson inaugurates a casual affair with French chanteuse Clementine (Anne Vernon). Upon returning to London, Ibbetson finds to his dismay that Clementine has followed him. How can he keep his Parisian rendezvous secret from his veddy proper mother (Hermione Badderly). In his British-film debut, dour character comedian Mischa Auer chews the scenery as a seedy nobleman who covets the affections of the hapless Clementine.
