Release of the movie was delayed because of a lawsuit Pathé brought against MGM. Although the novel by Alphonse Daudet was in public domain in the USA, it was still under copyright protection in Europe. Pathé won the lawsuit. See more »
This is one of those typical MGM soap operas from the early 1930s. Greta Garbo is beautiful and intriguing, as usual, although story is rather sluggish, dated and dry. She plays a Parisian model who falls in love with a very young Bob Montgomery, but her sorted past stands in their way. 2 1/2 out of 4 stars here.
