Based on the Broadway musical and featuring classic Cole Porter songs, this film stars Shirley MacLaine as a turn-of-the-century (that would be the 20th) Parisian club owner who is determined to get the titular risqué dance legalized so she can feature it in her establishment without the disruption of police. Frank Sinatra co-stars as her beau/attorney.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A vulgar and lackluster version of Cole Porter's musical set in Gay Paree in 1896."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Despite the star presence of Frank Sinatra and Shirley MacLaine, this is a second-rate musical due to Walter Lang's pedestrian direction but some of Cole Porter's songs are wonderful."
