One can only guess what sort of film might be made today with the title Gay Adventure. Back in 1953, this cognomen was affixed to a harmless British-comedy fantasy, with an impressive cast. The scene is the Paris-to-Calais train, where a young blonde (Paula Valenska) walks briefly but memorably past three male passengers: American Burgess Meredith, Frenchman Jean-Pierre Aumont and Englishman Richard Murdoch. Each of our three heroes fantasizes what life would be like in the company of the delectable damsel. All of their dreams are dashed by an amusing closing gag. Interestingly enough, Burgess Meredith co-starred in a similarly structured Hollywood comedy, Tom, Dick and Harry (1941).
