Beautiful! Wonderful! These screengrabs bring the film (of which I have only a hazy memory) back to life in a really interesting way. Now I want to see it again asap.

You should do a series like this for every Tashlin movie, all those claustrophobic spaces open only to public viewing. Makes me wonder what a Tashlin Kafka adaptation would have been like. Thought of doing one of the opening of Rock Hunter with all those containers and contamination, spilling, with Bosch--maybe I still should.

Thanks very much for this.

Zach, it's a rewarding film to return to, to say the least...

David, I'd love to see that post on Rock Hunter!

Mubarak, I did not like much "Bachelot Flat" the only time I saw it, long, long ago, neither Terry-Thomas nor the script or its spirit, despite the always magic presence of Tuesday Weld. But your post makes me wonder, and I'd like to see it again. Unfortunately (like much other Tashlin, most regrettably "Who's Minding the Store?") it seems unavailable on DVD.
Best,
Miguel Marías

It has taken me ages to discover your site. Finally. This is just the information I was looking for.
