Critic Reviews for That Girl from Paris

All Critics (2)

Jack Oakie and Mischa Auer save the picture.

April 22, 2020 | Full Review…

It's a fairly routine and subordinate role and, apart from the aria, almost any Hollywood actress with a good voice could have filled it acceptably.

Audience Reviews for That Girl from Paris


Typical 30's silliness with Lily singing prettily, Lucy lending funny bitchy support and Oakie, Auer and Jenks a daffy trio.
