Many of the models featured in the film were based in New York and flown out to Hollywood for filming. They were among the first to be introduced to Max Factor's new Pan-Cake makeup brand, which they then took back to New York, helping to quickly popularize the new item. 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.
