Slow moving, though good cinematographic views of Manhattan in the late 1950s; worth a look for this reason alone. People were somewhat more trusting then than now.

Bright lights, shiny cars, jazz and Manhattan c. 1960. Great job on cinematography. Wasn't thrilled with the camera movement, but a lot of stock footage rendering a documentary quality to the narrative. Worth watching. French ending.
