[[1]] An American in Paris (1951) [imdb]

This movie passed 1 of 3 tests. It was entered by Chinoiserie on 2012-06-29 18:45:46.



a disagreed with the rating and said:
I do think it *technically* passes all three, as there is a female customer (who later states her name) in the perfume shop being helped by Lise. It is brief, because a man interrupts them and tells the woman which perfume he thinks she should buy (because she stated she was unable to decide without her husband there). I do think that in spirit, it only passes the first test.

a had a good call with the perfume scene, but I checked and the woman in the perfume is listed as "uncredited" on IMDB. The character's name is Edna Mae Bestram played by Madge Blake. So, it still doesn't pass - based on that scene at least.
