Summary, etc.:
From the memoirs of Fran©ʹois Eug©·ne Vidocq, the elegant thief turned chief of police of all Paris, comes this rediscovered classic of melodrama and romance.. George Sanders is at his debonair best as we see him climb from clever criminal through the ranks of French society in the early 1800's, with seemingly nothing to stop him from the biggest heist of his career ... except, perhaps, the charms of a young lady.. "With a display of suave images and wry performances, Sirk delights in the elegant formalities that withhold judgment in favor of pleasure and knowledge." - Richard Brody, New Yorker. "A Scandal in Paris goes heavy on the comedy, light on the drama, and all-out on the entertainment." - Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
