A very well done comedy
6 March 2001 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Marion Davies plays an American girl touring Europe who gets hired as a 'cardboard lover' to teach Nils Asther's two timing girlfriend Jetta Goudal a lesson, but then she gets stuck on him.

A high point is Marion Davies' parody of Jetta Goudal's vamping. A grand Hollywood production with wonderful sets and women's costumes.
