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.
