Storyline

The blueblooded Van Kletterings are broke; debutante Wendy, slated to remedy this by marrying rich bore Henry Morgan, instead leaves him at the altar and goes to work as a model for high-fashion clothing designer George Curson, whom she soon falls for. But he's happily married (at least on his side) and going into debt financing a show to please wife Mary's desire for stardom. Vindictive Morgan, jealous of George, hopes to hasten his ruin. Can the House of Curson be saved? Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Lavishly costumed Technicolor treat.
11 November 1999 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

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.
