One of the nicest opening lines in a film…


is – “This picture takes place in Paris in those wonderful days when a siren was a brunette and not an alarm — and if a Frenchman turned out the light, it was not on account of an air raid!”

…from Ninotchka, made in 1939.

After the credits, the film’s prologue is viewed over a long shot view of the Place de la Concorde in Paris, and that’s when you hear this line.
