A Scandal in Paris
This film is a liberal adaptation of the life story of Eugene Francois Vidocq, a French prefect of police in the years prior to the Revolution. George Sanders stars as Vidocq, who spends most of the film as an aimless rogue willing to lie, cheat, and steal for his comfort.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Never gets to the comic effects it reaches for."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"It's probably safe to say that the earnest A Scandal in Paris won't ever approach the level of acceptance accorded to All That Heaven Allows and Imitation of Life."
‑ Eric Henderson, Slant Magazine
