About Perry Como's Christmas In Paris
Honey voiced crooner Perry Como graced TV screens during the Christmas season for more than forty years, first as the host of a long-running weekly musical-variety series and later as the star (and producer) of ambitious holiday specials.
Eating is a vital component of the holidays, and Perry does plenty of that in this delicious 1982 special, particularly in a French pastry-filled rendition of “The 12 Days of Christmas.” He learns the history of the Can-can in Montmartre and performs in a traditional Paris music hall with French vocalist Line Renaud, Argentine musician Jairo, and American actress Angie Dickinson. And Angie joins him for a duet of carols as they float up the River Seine.
This is another thing to love about the Como shows. Whether you’re known as a singer or not, you sing. After all, it’s Christmas. And everybody sounds great when they’re singing Christmas songs.
Produced by Bob Banner, Stephen Pouliot
