Chemin de Paradis (Road to Paradise) is the French-language version of the incredibly successful German musical comedy Die Drei von der Tankstelle, with Lillian Harvey repeating her role as flirtatious young heiress Liliane. The plot still revolves around three young men who try to square their mountain debts by opening a roadside gas station. Unbeknownst to the other two, each of the three heroes falls madly in love with Liliane, their best customer. The heroine reciprocates by arranging for her wealthy father to organize a huge gas company, thereby guaranteeing the long-range profitability of the gas station. The boys aren't happy to be beholden to Liliane, but one of them swallows his pride long enough to marry the girl. For the benefit of Lilian Harvey's Gallic fans, Chemin de Paradis includes several revue-like musical numbers not seen in the original German version.
