Want to spend a day exploring Paris at your own pace, seeing what you want to see and making all the decisions yourself? Forget the tour buses - jump onboard the Eurostar from St. Pancras Station and three hours later you'll be sipping Champagne at a café on the Champs-Élysées!
In that paragon of travel documentaries, National Lampoon's European Vacation, there is a scene in which Ellen Griswold (Beverly D'Angelo) forgets to lock the door on the shared bathroom in their London hotel. A man comes in to brush his teeth and is pleasantly surprised when Ellen—washcloth over face and believing the man to be her hubby, Clark—calls to him from the bathtub to join her. Shock and hilarity ensue. The accidental intruder was played by none of ther than Robbie Coltrane, 16 years before he embodied Hagrid in the Harry Potter films.
