[referring to a painting of Irene]
Well, what do you think of your portrait? I had it painted from a cherished photograph, and I'm going to hang it in the royal suite of The Princess Irene.

Charles Boyer has never been more charming and Jean Arthur never more beautiful as impromptu lovers Paul and Irene. Colin Clive is brilliant as Irene's madly jealous and obsessive husband Bruce, who unwittingly brings the two lovers together and follows desperate measures to keep them apart. Boyer's and Arthur's tender love scenes make this film one of the greatest unsung screen romances.
