One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Its earliest documented television presentation took place in Johnstown, Pennsylvania Monday 14 December 1959 on WJAC (Channel 6); thanks to the presence of a young Cary Grant, in one of his more or less forgotten, early efforts, it was eventually aired in San Francisco 20 January 1960 on KPIX (Channel 5), in Toledo 25 June 1960 on WTOL (Channel 11), in Grand Rapids 26 August 1960 on WOOD (Channel 8), in Cleveland 11 November 1960 on WJW (Channel 8), and in Chicago 12 December 1960 on WBBM (Channel 2). It was released on DVD 19 April 2016 as one of 18 titles in Universal's Cary Grant - the Vault Collection, and again as a single 12 October 2016 as part of the Universal Vault Series. See more »
Gerald Fitzgerald (Cary Grant) is a rabid opera fan who loves watching the talented and beautiful Lisa Della Robbia (Elissa Landi). By accident the two end up meeting and falling in love. They're quickly married and Gerald thinks he's got the greatest job in the world as a husband to an opera star. Pretty soon he starts to realize being second place to her career isn't much fun.
ENTER MADAME! is another early Cary Grant picture where the actor was pretty much been given lesser quality scripts and the end results pretty much show that. With that said, there's no question that this here was slightly better than KISS AND MAKE-UP as well as LADIES SHOULD LISTEN. Still, after three duds in a row, I guess we're lucky that Grant managed to keep getting pictures. Even though he's good in them, there's no question that none of them were all that impressive.
This one here is a decent romantic comedy where a love triangle is the subject. After Grant and Landi are married, he soon starts to realize that he might have been happier with his friend Flora (Sharon Lynn), which leads to a divorce and a new marriage. Soon more complications come into play and all three are battling it out. The scenario is interesting enough, if not that original, but very little is actually done with it and in the end there just aren't enough laughs to make it worth sitting through.
The saving grace to the picture are obviously the performances. Grant is in fine form as he plays the dashing and charming man. This is the type of character he could play with ease and he turns in a good performance. Landi pretty much plays a snob throughout the movie but she does a very good job with it and Lynn is also good as the opposite type of character. Ann Sheridan has a very small supporting role.
