French Dressing (1964)

Film details


Jim, a deck chair attendant at Gormleigh-on-Sea, a deserted holiday resort, takes over the post of publicity officer. He and his friend, Henry, the entertainments officer, import a sexy French film star and organise a film festival. Press and holiday makers arrive in force but the festival is sabotaged by the mayors of rival resorts. Judy, Jim's girl-friend, writes an unfavourable review of the French film star which incites her to leave. To save the day Judy, disguised in a blond wig and sun glasses, opens the nudist beach but in heavy rain Jim rescues her from the embarrassing position.
