In the French Style is a 1962 French-American romance film released by Columbia Pictures directed by Robert Parrish and stars Jean Seberg, Stanley Baker and Philippe Forquet.[1] It was based on a short story by Irwin Shaw.


The young American student Christina James (Jean Seberg) comes to Paris to live in the art scene. After six months in Paris, she meets sixteen-year-old Guy (Philippe Forquet) at an over-attended gallery showing and their romance develops. Later, she enjoys encounters with European men. Her Chicago-based history professor father (Addison Powell) cautions her about fleeting love. She abandons a long-time attachment to a British international journalist (Stanley Baker) to marry the San Francisco, California surgeon Dr. John Haislip (James Leo Herlihy).
