Aye, Aye

In French the tile is Le Purnelle de mes yeux which translates as 'the pupil of my eyes, plural, thus making something of a hash of the expression we in England know as 'the apple of my eye', singular. It's a mostly ho-hum entry with no 'names' either in front of or behind the camera that will mean anything in England. Typical male chauvinist encounters a girl in a lift and completely fails to notice she's blind. Later he thinks it might be a hoot to pretend that he himself is blind. Can you see where we're going with this? I hope so because you should be ahead of me. There was a post-war movie from Hollywood on a similar premise with Dana Andrews as a blind pianist in a band run by Hoagy Carmichael - Andrews had lost his sight in battle and it was restorable. Again the female lead, in this case Ms Gotrocks, also affected blindness and went so far as to sponsor a competition and fixed it for Andrews to win. It wasn't Citizen Kane but it was still light years ahead of this.
