a genuinely forgotten film
28 November 2007 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

What a discovery! My wife and I were perusing a Madrid flea market and came across a few American films, released cheaply and given Spanish subtitles. This one had Douglas Fairbanks Jr and neither of us could make out what film it was. It turned out this was not because of the Spanish title translation but because this seems to be a genuinely forgotten film. Goodness knows why because it is an absolute gem and the perfect screwball comedy. Fairbanks is fine but the gorgeous Danielle Darrieux is amazing, a sheer delight throughout. The dialogue sparkles as much as she does and the only reason few will know her name is that this is one of the very few non French films she made, even though she is still making a contribution to French film, even now. The story of a pretty young thing wanting to marry rich is hardly original but take my word for it this is one of the very best.
