Trivia

Herman Bing as "Alpine Tourist" in studio records/casting call lists for this movie, but he did not appear or was not identifiable. C. Henry Gordon is credited as "Fritz' by some sources (including The New York Times), but that role was played by Alan Mowbray and he was not seen in any other role. See more »

Goofs

After the baroness pulls a gun on the robber, he distracts her by kissing her, whereupon she drops the gun on his foot. She runs to the other side of the room with the robber limping after her. The gun is on the floor as he starts toward her; when he reaches her he's holding it. See more »

pre-code in a nutshell
1 February 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film has to be on the short list of films-that-epitomize-pre-code-Hollywood. Adultery, drugs, crime, flaunting of morals and convention, free-spirit thumbing their nose, all done with humour and glamour. One can understand why the church was upset! Problem was that there were many films that played on these themes so it must have seemed that Hollywood was really out to corrupt the world. This one has the full package but with a wink and smoothness that today's garbage film-makers would never have the patience to pull-off. Too bad the code swung the pendulum way too far in the other direction. A must-see for Francis and Powell fans.
