This is one of those films that I had heard of and never thought it would be this good.The second teaming of Gary Cooper and Marlene Dietrich, six years after "Morocco", is a sheer delight.They have a beautiful chemistry in this movie.She is alluring and mysterious,and he is the naive but charming American everyman.This is perhaps the first time Cooper used this screen persona,which he did so well in later comedies.There are two hilarious supporting performances by Alan Mowbray and Ernest Cossart as Dietrich's easy victims of the jewel theft.This comedy is what I would call sophisticated,elegant and witty. Here we have Cooper and Dietrich at their best and watch them having fun together.
