Very witty, Lubitsch-like comedy from Sirk

This film is excellent! I don't understand why anyone would call this the "nadir" of Sirk's career, as it is far more intelligent than any of Sirk's famous melodramas. While I enjoy those films, this remains my favorite Sirk picture. The story chronicles the misadventures of pretty rascal turned gentleman thief, Eugene Vidocq, played by the eternal screen cad George Sanders. This is one of Sanders' best caddish roles, as he sidles around chateaux and graveyards, uttering lines such as "sometimes the chains of marriage as so heavy they must be carried by three". In addition to the witty, frothy humour, there is a dark undercurrent to the film that is evidenced in its noirish photography and the amorality of the lead characters. High recommended to fans of Old Hollywood who enjoy the more eclectic films of that period!

Great vehicle for George Sanders

"A Scandal in Paris" is a 1946 film starring George Sanders, Akim Tamiroff, Signe Hasso, and Carole Landis. Directed by Douglas Sirk, it's based on the memoirs of François-Eugène Vidocq, a thief who became the Chief of Police in the 18th Century. The story begins with Francois being born in a jail and covers his European escapades. At one point, he poses for a painting of St. George and rides off on the horse he sits on; later, a marquise's granddaughter (Hasso) falls in love with the face in the painting and recognizes him when he comes to stay with her grandmother...and steal her jewels.

A very witty script that is perfect for the elegant, handsome Sanders. This role seems tailor-made for him. The beautiful Carole Landis plays one of his victims, a showgirl with a valuable garter. Sadly, by this time, her career had really stalled out. She's still a bright and glamorous presence. Hasso is an odd choice for an ingénue role, though she does a good job.

Entertaining film, particularly because of George Sanders.

Great Film Classic

Have always wanted to view this film starring George Sanders,(Eugene Francois Vidocq) along with Signe Hasso,(Therese De Pierremont) and Carole Landis ( Loretta). This film had plenty of comedy, drama and romance going on with sexy Loretta who doesn't mess around with Eugene Vidocq except when she lets him take her garter off her leg in those horse draw carriages in France years and years ago. Gene Lockhart,(Police Chief Richet) who marries Loretta and becomes a jealous lover and follows her throughout the streets of Paris with bird cages on his back. Gene Lockhart gave a great supporting role and was the father of June Lockhart in the series, "Lassie". Akim Tamiroff, (Emile Vernet) was a buddy to Eugene Vidocq and was another great thief and professional con-man who would steal a bind man of his pencils. It was great seeing Carole Landis looking so sexy and beautiful and who took her own life in 1948. This is a great Classic film from 1946 and well worth your time to view. Enjoy !
