Synopsis by Hal Erickson
By way of explanation, Trente-Six Chandelies (Thirty-Six Candles) was a popular French TV series of the late 1950s. C'est Arrive a Trente-Six Chadelies is ostensibly the story of a young girl (Jane Sourza) who is separated from her boyfriend (Jacques Riberolles) by her social-climbing parents. In desperation, the boy takes to the air on the titular TV weekly to plead for his beloved's return. Were that all there was to the film, the audience would be home in bed after 25 minutes. Instead, the film uses its TV-studio setting as an excuse for a parade of top Parisian variety acts.
