Maurice Chevalier is as roguishly charming as ever in J'Avais Sept Filles (I Had Seven Daughters). Chevalier plays an aging aristocratic roue who recalls his amorous history while writing his memoirs. His most vivid memory is the time that he became involved with a group of ballet dancers -- the "seven daughters" of the title. He is particularly interested in the welfare of prima ballerina Luisella (Delia Scala), though the other girls are equally easy on the eye. A bit old-fashioned in its approach, J'Avais Sept Filles is held together by the indomitable appeal of Maurice Chevalier, who seemed to get better as he grew older.
