Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Trip to America offers the viewer just that -- except there isn't much of America to be seen. Middle-aged French banker Gaston Fournier (Pierre Fresnay) and his wife Clotilde (Yvonne Printemps) impulsively decide to take a plane trip to the good old USA. Actually, the vacation is more Clotilde's idea; if Gaston had his way, he'd rusticate in his little French village until doomsday. Once the trip is under way, Gaston has more fun than his missus, but that's to be expected in a light comedy of this nature. The film's romantic angle is handled by Claude Laydu as the son of the Fourniers' gardener and an orphaned gamine (Listette le Bon).
