Delightful Lubitsch-like comedy of manners - wonderful ensemble playing
29 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a delightful Lubitsch-like comedy of manners, very well written

  • the ensemble acting from all concerned (MacDonald, Loewe, Merkel,


Young) is exemplary under William K. Howard's direction. It does have a low concept of women, as being children needing a man's guidance, which Merkel and MacDonald soon disprove.

It is elegant and sophisticated and very highly recommended.

Unfortunately, the only DVD print available, through Loving The Classics, is washed out, fuzzy, dark at times and the entire last 30 minutes of it involves a shaking screen. It's taken from a VHS copy with horizontal blips in a few scenes. There are no songs for anyone in the cast.

MacDonald doesn't make her entry until 21:45 into the action.

Risqué gay innuendo from MacDonald: "What are you two men doing on a yacht? Cruising? "

Caesar Romero is seen for one second taking over Merkel as dancer, when Kerrigan exits.
