Come Fly With Me (1963)

Three stewardesses (as they were called back in the 1960s) who have the New York to Paris run find themselves attracted to three different men: Dolores Hart has her eye on a titled Austrian aristocrat (Karlheinz Bohm), Pamela Tiffin sets her cap for an airline pilot (Hugh O'Brian) and Lois Nettleton falls for a Texas widower (Karl Malden). Based on the novel GIRL ON A WING by Bernard Glemser and directed by Henry Levin (WHERE THE BOYS ARE). The three girls hunting for a husband scenario is hardly original and goes back to the 1930s. Perhaps the more notable examples are HOW TO MARRY A MILLIONAIRE (1953) and THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN (1954). This one doesn't add anything fresh to the mix. Fortunately, the actresses are appealing and we do get to see a bit of Paris and Vienna but it's the cinematic equivalent of cotton candy, sweet and airy but unsubstantial. You either have a taste for this kind of movie confection or you don't. With Dawn Addams, Lois Maxwell, George Coulouris and Ferdy Mayne.
