Cute!
13 September 2000 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This peppy little fantasy with songs is like Weimar Germany's answer to the Jeanette MacDonald-Maurice Chevalier musicals (the story actually bears similarities to "The Love Parade.") It's easy to see from this why Anna Sten was brought to Hollywood as a Marlene Dietrich clone, as the resemblance is truly uncanny. Peter Lorre (fresh from "M") is adorable in his little sailor costume, and there's even a glimpse of the Comedian Harmonists!
