Filmed on location in Paris, this 1964 romantic comedy (adapted from Julien Duvivier's La Fte Henriette) reunited the stars of 1954's Sabrina, William Holden and Audrey Hepburn. Holden plays Richard Benson, a Hollywood screenwriter being pressured by movie producer Alexander Meyerheimer (Nol Coward) to finish a script called The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower. Meyerheimer gives Richard two days to complete it, unaware that he hasn't even started. In desperation, Richard hires a secretary to help him be more productive. Gabrielle (Audrey Hepburn) moves in with him and they fall madly in love, while confusing their own lives with those of the script's characters. Among the cameos in the party scene are Marlene Dietrich (who reportedly kept the fur coat and the limousine in which she arrives), Mel Ferrer (Hepburn's husband at the time), Tony Curtis, and the singing voices of Frank Sinatra and Fred Astaire.

"This movie about making a bad movie has moments of brilliance.... There is an interesting and sometimes hilarious premise working within Paris When It Sizzles: the 'movie' that the characters are writing appears before us as if that is the movie we are watching, and then backs up or gets completely changed at the whim of the writer."DVD Verdict
