I just saw this delightful 1934 film on TCM, mainly because I always enjoyed the star Dolores Del Rio. Story wise this is not historically accurate as our heroine was a schemeing vixen & paramour of Louis XV of France. This film is more of a comedy than history. Miss Del Rio was one of the most beautiful of all actresses of the time & a reasonably good actress. Reginald Owen A leading actor of the era plays King Louis XV superbly. Anita Louise is very good as Marie Antoinette, The queen was a teen then as well as the Dauphin who later becomes Louis XVI. The actor who plays him was superb,The dauphin was only 16 when he met Marie (who was 15), They definitly seem the ages. The sets & costumes are excellent. In the thirties all films were made on the studio lot.(Warner Bros.) They had real craftsmen back then. who created Palaces & gardens for next to nothing.
If you want to spend an enjoyable 80 minutes, catch this film I am glad I saw it.
