I enjoyed Cluny Brown. I don't think this film is one of Lubitsch's best. But in my opinion, this film can be considered as a satisfactory end to Lubitsch's Career. Lubitsch gave us wonderful films like The Shop around the Corner, To be or not to be, A Royal Scandal, Heaven Can Wait, Trouble in Paradise, and other wonderful films.
I consider this film as last pure Lubitsch film.
It is wonderful to see Charles Boyer in a Lubitsch film. His performance was great in this film. Jennifer Jones and others were great too.
I read a review recently on Cluny Brown. I read an interesting information from the review. Here it is - "This subtle comedy satirizes English social distinctions by showing two free spirits from different classes drawn to each other." I found that information very interesting. Charles Boyer's character doesn't really belong anywhere. He is a totally free spirit. But he is a character who is very happy and his attitude impresses other people. And he finally makes Cluny Brown a totally free spirit.
I highly recommend this film for any Lubitsch admirers.
