Monsieur Beaucaire (George Marshall, 1946). Bob Hope in full gallop – a barber to the French court who impersonates a nobleman in an arranged royal marriage, with complications. Your patience for this will depend entirely on how much you like Hope’s dithery energy, but it’s sturdy and silly in equal measures, and Paramount didn’t stint on the period sets and costumes. You wish it would be more anarchic, but that wasn’t really the program.
