Nous Irons a Paris is a gentle but pointed satire of the government-controlled French radio industry. Fired from his singing job, hero Jacques (Phillipe Lemaire) sets up a "pirate" radio station with the help of a few friends. Before long, Jacques' illegal broadcast facility gains enormous popularity, as well as the vindictive scrutiny of the French Radio Administration. Fortunately, Jacques and his cronies always manage to stay one step ahead of the authorities -- at least until they set up shop on an old barge. All ends happily for everyone concerned, especially Jacques and his lady love Micheline (Francoise Arnoul). Enhancing the box-office appeal of Nous Irons a Paris is the presence of several surprise guest stars, ranging from Gallic favorite Martine Carol to Hollywood's George Raft!
