Sweet little story about the Princess and the Nobody
9 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

My mother recently (well, maybe not so recently) got majorly interested in the Life and Times and Films of Fredric March and found out about people who had taped his nolongeravailable movies from TV and we got this along with them and I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this one because even though it is a bit unrealistic it is full of some of the most poetically romantic speeches I've ever heard. Maybe it's just me, but every time I watch a good Fredric March movie and listen to those melodramatic love scenes I distinctly hear harps playing in the air. It's interesting to me that very often in his movies he does all the poetic speeches and the women are just supposed to gaze and reply, "Yes, dahling." The costumes are interesting, particularly the ones they wear at the beginning. Claudette Colbert's head appears to float upon a great cloud of fluffy collar, and gaudy sparkles and spangles make it even more... well... interesting.

I won't say anything about the plot but it's quite a good story even if it is a bit improbable. It would be so nice if they'd restore it and re-release it along with so many of the other good Fredric movies from way back then.

I implore you with all my heart to try to see this on TV if you can find out when it will be on. It's not very deep but it's fun to watch.
