Goofs

In the garden at Bridget's home, Mary is next to a small statuette that holds a wreath and stands on a simple pedestal. In the next scene, the statuette's relationship to Mary has changed, the wreath is missing, and the pedestal more complex. In the third scene, the statuette has reverted to that in the first scene.

Sophisticated
21 March 2003 | by (Durham, NH) – See all my reviews

What a thought provoking and stimulating movie. One begins to sense what was lost due restriction of the Hays Commission. The svelte Ann Harding steels the show. She literally makes you fall in love with her character. Frank Morgan's role was very different from those that he later played. The sincere caring that the two female characters had for one another shows a sophistication that is as entrancing as it is admirable.
