The Lyons in Paris (AKA The Lyons Abroad and Mr. and Mrs. in Paree) is a 1955 British comedy film directed by Val Guest and starring Ben Lyon, Bebe Daniels and Reginald Beckwith.[1] It was a sequel to the 1954 film Life with the Lyons, and was shot at Southall Studios, though some genuine Paris location shots were used.[2] [3]


Has Ben Lyon forgotten his wedding anniversary? His wife Bebe thinks he has, and can hardly contain her fury. When his son Richard sees him dining with a glamorous French singer he thinks the worst. But Ben is actually buying tickets from her, and he surprises everyone with a family holiday to Paris. Once in Paris, there are further misunderstandings involving the singer, trouble with an antique car, as well as visits to a seedy night club and to the famous Folies Bergère.


Critical reception

David McGillivray wrote in the Radio Times, "director Val Guest maintains a brisk pace, and the Lyons are really rather endearing." [2]
