James Whale romantic comedy
2 April 1999 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

Charming film. Lukas is not quite suited to the role. Music is played too loud throughout although it is good music. Whale must have done this quick. Not a whole lot of Whale genius here. Still enjoyable for fans of the period.
