A Parisian Romance was originally written as a stage vehicle for the great Richard Mansfield. When time came to film the property, however, Fox was obliged to use a lesser light, H. Cooper Cliffe, in the role of Baron Chevrial. The story is the old saw about a nobleman falling in love with a dancing girl (played by Dorothy Green). While it may have been intensely dramatic on stage, the plotline tended to induce laughter when it was shown on the silver screen. Perhaps this was because the projectionist of the New York theater where the film premiered ran the picture at maximum speed, thereby shortening its running time to a scant 48 minutes.
