The marvelous Irwin Shaw adapted two of his own Paris-set short stories for In the French Style (1963), directed by Robert Parrish (The Wonderful Country) and starring Jean Seberg. Once again, Seberg is the archetypal footloose American girl in the City of Light, engaging in a series of affairs before falling hard for a hard-drinking journalist (Stanley Baker). Beautifully shot by Michel Kelber (French Cancan) and featuring a score by the man who was, for many years, Jean Renoir’s house composer, Joseph Kosma.

A sophisticated love story…Seberg brings life and brilliance to her portrayal, registering strongly both in the more dramatic and lighter moments.”
“A tender and wistful contemplation that does catch the poignancy of youth…Mr. Parrish has done a good job in directing Jean Seberg.”
– The New York Times
