Ten Days in Paris is a 1940 British comedy mystery film directed by Tim Whelan and starring Rex Harrison, Kaaren Verne and C.V. France.[1] The film is also known as Missing Ten Days and Spy in the Pantry. [2] A tourist in Paris turns out to be a doppelganger of a German spy operating in the French capital.


Critical reception[edit]

The Radio Times wrote, "as an example of gentlemanly espionage - which only Hitchcock broke with violent genius - it has no suspense, and even the charismatic Harrison exhibits little of his usual flair" ; [3] while The New York Times wrote, "preposterous as it is, Missing Ten Days is rattling good fun." [4]
