Storyline

Dr. Stephen Dominick is the head of a German girls' finishing school and a published author who is very popular with his students. When Professor Augusta Wimmer, a snooping busybody, finds a love letter in a wastepaper basket, she goes immediately to Dominick and demands an inquiry to determine the writer's identity. Handwriting comparisons point to Marie Claudel, a 19 year old French girl. Despite threats, the senior refuses to disclose the object of her affections. Could it be the headmaster?

Herbert Marshall does his best with a foolish character and a melodramatic script. Simone is electric on the screen but the chemistry between she and Ruth Chatterton is far more compelling than between Marshall and either one of his leading ladies. I LOVED this movie when I was young, but cannot remember why. Seeing it now just makes me feel very, very old because the mores and standards promulgated are just so outdated.
