Bold, eccentric Broadway performer Lisa Madden befuddles her handlers by coming home with a baby she picked up on the street. She wants to keep the baby but has to find a husband to make adoption viable. Why not her new obstetrician Dr. McBain? She offers him help with his research on rabbits in exchange for marriage - and he accepts. The marriage of convenience turns into a marriage of real love. When Dr. McBain's ex-wife comes looking for money, Lisa suspects something and leaves New York. However, a serious illness with the baby brings them together again as McBain operates to try and save the baby's life. Written by

Early in the shooting, Marlene Dietrich severely injured her right ankle in a fall, and her entire right leg had to be placed in a cast. That's why in this film she is always shown in full-length outfits (gowns, slacks, etc.) and just one shot of her unclothed leg is seen, and that is in shadow. See more »

for the self irony of Dietrich performance. for the nice story and air of far age of cinema. for inspired cast. and, sure, for the respect for recipes of romantic comedy. it is not a link from chain of fashion of art. few sparkles, a seductive Dietrich, mixture of love balloons and fine humor, the dramatic small slice and the touching solutions to create identity in a ocean of clones, all is good reason to see it and, in a measure or other, to love it. because it is almost magic like many films from that period. because the acting is smart and the game of nuances not uninspired. because, after war of blockbusters, this film has the gift to be comfortable. and for occasion to travel in time. and discover than life is beautiful.
