Glowingly photographed in B&W by Lucien Andriot on Zanuck's Twentieth Century Fox's lot, the blonde English beauty Madeline Carroll --best remembered for being handcuffed to Robert Donat in "The 39 Steps"-- never looked more enchanting. The film features some of Irving Berlin's best romantic ballads, foremost of which is the almost forgotten "You're Laughing At Me," which Ella Fitzgerald later revived in her classic 1958 album of The Irving Berlin Song Book. The great character comic Sig Ruman ("To Be or Not to Be") shows up as an over-weight trainer in gym clothes, and for the grand finale even gets to sing part of "Slumming on Park Avenue" in a German accent. Vastly entertaining plot if vastly silly. But who cares?
