This is a delightful and stylish thirties comedy well worth viewing.
16 December 1999 | by (Carlsbad, California) – See all my reviews

Claudette Colbert and Charles Boyer make a delightful team in this stylish thirties comedy. This film is creative and amusing in much the same manner as My Man Godfry. For anyone who enjoys black and white films this will be enjoyable. It has something about it of the grace and style of the old Fred Astaire/Ginger Rogers films.
