Movie Info

A simple man from the hills of Oklahoma strikes oil on his land, prompting his pretentious, status-climbing wife to drag him, reluctantly, through the highest stratas of French society. Will Rogers's talking-picture debut -- which would seem to have formed the rough foundation for television's much later The Beverly Hillbillies.

Audience Reviews for They Had to See Paris

  • Feb 14, 2011
    As predictable and boring as a movie, about a family poor who strikes it rich and moves to Paris, can be. It's not funny or dramatic really, but the actors aren't too bad. Overall I didn't like it.
