Nestor (Jack Lemmon) is a bumbling Parisian policeman who manages to get the sack after raiding a house of ill repute at which his boss is in attendance. Looking for work, he is taken on by streetwalker Irma La Douce (Shirley Maclaine) as her business manager, and soon finds himself falling in love with her. Determined to keep Irma faithful, Nestor disguises himself as an elderly English lord and becomes her sole client. All goes well, until Irma confesses her love to Nestor - not for him, but for his aged alter ego!

Joanne, South Africa. 28 August 2015

One of the iconic, forgotten movies which I collect

Marguerite, South Africa. 18 August 2016

Golden Globe nominated Jack Lemmon & Golden Globe winner / Oscar nominated Shirley MacLaine star in this humorous tale of a policeman who falls in love with a prostitute. After raiding a police-protected prostitution ring, the hapless gendarme, Nestor, accepts accommodation from one of the "poule" and finds himself living off the proceeds of Irma's trade. This raises the ire of her former pimp Hippolite (Bruce Yarnell). To save face, Nestor, with the assistance of local bar-tender Moustache (Lou Jacobi), invents a wealthy English aristocrat who can afford to keep Irma off the streets. This is French farce at its best, as the audience watches Nestor's plan unravel in a most unfortunate way. Of course, as in all good farce, the end must be a happy one, but even here there is an unexpected twist in the tail.
Andre Previn won an Oscar for his music score, which, disappointingly, did not feature the lyrics of songwriter Marguerite Monnot, and the film makers made only one concession to Miss MacLaine's dancing talent in allowing her a single rousing dance number in Moustache's bar. Costume designer Orry-Kelly, known for his extravagant costumes for stars like Marilyn Monroe, also has little opportunity to display his talents, with limited costume changes (if any) for the myriad ladies of the night. A little long-winded, the film is nevertheless most entertaining and a must for fans of Lemmon & MacLaine.
