Please, Monsieur Charlier. You know that kissing is not hygienic. Doctors claim that millions die each year from kissing.

A risqué farce. Maurice Chevalier in a dual role is two more Chevaliers than I might want. But here he is amusing -- both as the performer and the Baron the performer impersonates.
There are two cute dance routines that seem patterned after Busby Berkeley.
Ann Sothern is, as always, a delight. She plays Chevalier's on-stage partner. Merle Oberon looks very exotic. The fist shots of her are breathtaking. Today, when ethnicity is less a matter of concern for stars, she might have retained that look. It could have made her an even greater draw. Truly, I have never seen her looking more beautiful.
