No acting to speak of-really-but what a set.
6 April 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here's a film with little redeeming social value-ok, the theme true love triumphs is there-but with a lavish party scene on board a huge zeppelin that is to be enjoyed on its own. The costumes are amazing and the set is elaborate. This is a film from the days when Hollywood made pictures as a feast for the eyes rather than as a main course for the mind. Certainly worth a look for any film buff. A film that should be on DVD as a historical artifact of 30's Hollywood and DeMille's ability to stage spectacles anywhere.

The premise is almost worthy of Fitzgerald in that the idle rich are certainly idle and life is seen is an opportunity for wine women and song. All three are in this picture but don't hold out much for the song.
