When Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett turned in their script, the studio liked it, but felt it needed some work. The writers they hired to rewrite the script were: Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett. The studio sent them their own script to rewrite without knowing it. Wilder and Brackett simply retyped their original script and the studio loved the "rewrites" so much, they produced it with no further "changes". See more »

This is a wonderful film in which Eve Peabody, a homeless would-be blues singer, is allowed into the elite Parisian society by Barrymore. While posing as the Baroness Czerny of Hungary, Tibor Czerny (Ameche), a cab driver,not royalty, pursues the lovely Peabody. It is delightful to see Peabody's constant deceptions grow larger and larger throughout the film until she finally decides the high life isn't really for her. I highly recommend Midnight.
