Irma La Douce has three things going for it in my opinion; that's Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine and Billy Wilder oh and it is set in Paris, so make that four. Oh yeah Tura Santana and Joan Shawlee are in it too, need I go on? Irma is a prostitute who happens to be the most sort after in all of Paris. Nester, played by Lemmon is a good natured policeman who feels it is his duty to eradicate all the street walking in Paris, however in the midst of this he falls for the girl in green, Irma.
In order to stop his beloved Irma from sleeping with every paying man in Paris, he takes on the guise of an English aristocrat, who will be her only client from now on. This is a beautiful film to look at, I love the use of colour, and now feel I need to have even more green in my wardrobe (currently eyeing up green stockings on eBay). Shirley and Jack are just perfection together. Please do excuse the excessive amount of screen capping.
This is pretty much what the street was like when I stayed in Paris, except the ladies were not as well dressed.
I want an apartment like this, preferably whilst I jaunt around in this ensemble.
How perfect is this hat, I need to learn how to make pom poms, I have heard it is quite simple.
