Walter Wanger wanted to make a Vogues movie since 1934 (he signed Frances Langford for it in December 1934), but waited till the Technicolor process reached a higher state of development. Langford was listed as member of the cast till 1937 and it is unknown if there were any scenes with her shot, but she does not appear in the final version. See more »

This is certainly way above average for the genre of light romantic comedy. Joan Bennett is ravishing and highly talented in the lead although Warner Baxter looks tired and a bit old for his role. Mischa Auer is predictably wonderfully funny. The plot is slight but the Technicolor is sumptuous - get a load of the shades of blue on Mischa Auer's doorman uniform. And the costumes - hundreds and hundreds of them (this is after all a fashion show). An extraordinary Costume Design achievement that should have won an Oscar but for the fact that the category didn't exist back then. A total treat for the eyes and a pleasant comedy to boot. Highly recommended.
