Classic but dated comedy with an exceptional French actress, 17 May 2006
Author: ma-cortes from Santander Spain

An enticing French girl (Danielle Darrieux) named Nicole has no employ and without rent . Then , she's helped by an ex-actress (Broderick) and a maitre of New York City Hotel (Mischa Auer). They are planning a plot for snare a rich hubby and catch the eyes on Bill (Louis Hayward ). The scheme works and the engagement is quickly publicized in the newspapers . But a Bill's friend (Douglas Fairbanks J.R) knows the true intentions and the plans may be thwarted .

The movie is a well acted and fast-paced screwball comedy with several giggles , joyful , tongue-in-cheek and very entertaining . Besides , the sympathetic relationship between lovely Darrieux and gallant Fairbanks into the countryside house is similar to developed between Claudette Colbert and Clark Cable in ¨It happened one night¨ (Frank Capra) . Danielle Darrieux as the French young girl is top-notch , she's a fascinating comedian . Her playing as an attractive and enjoyable French young girl demonstrates experience as future first star , as happened in her unforgettable role as countess in ¨ Five fingers¨(Joseph L. Mankiewicz) . She nowadays follows acting even at ninety years old . The two partners -Douglas Fairbanks and Louis Hayward- are ordinary heroes of adventure cinema, here turned into a sympathetic comedian actors and both are awesome . The veteran Mischa Auer , as always , plays the relief comic role as a likable head-waiter. Furthermore , Mary Martin's film debut . The picture was well directed by Henry Koster . The movie will appeal to classic comedy moviegoers. Rating : Better than average and amusing .
