Movie Info

The offspring of the American ambassador to France (the star was then living in Paris with her journalist husband), De Havilland tries to dissuade narrow-minded senator Adolphe Menjou from declaring Paris "off limits" to American servicemen. One such man in uniform is sergeant John Forsythe, who falls in love with De Havilland, whom he mistakes for a model. Eventually Menjou is shown the error of his ways through the combined efforts of De Havilland and his own wife Myrna Loy, while Our Heroine finds true happiness as an Army wife. The Ambassador's Daughter was produced, written and directed by Norman Krasna, a renowned Hollywood wit whose comic gifts were apparently left back in California on this occasion.

Audience Reviews for The Ambassador's Daughter

Frothy bit of fluff but with a great deal of charm. The entire cast are expert comedians excepting Forsythe but his role is really that of the straight man anyway. This was Myrna Loy's first supporting role after years in the star spot but while she is clearly secondary her skillful presence keeps her in mind even when she is offscreen. Tommy Noonan is most amusing as Forsythe's befuddled pal, his gauche hayseed with a good heart makes a nice counterpoint to the sophistication of the other players. Shot entirely in Paris with clothes by Dior this is a chic souffle of the type that Hollywood has no idea how to make anymore.
