This is the kind of movie I like to see.
31 March 2014 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

To be successful, there has to be close coordination between the script writer, the cinematographer, and the director, and this movie has it. It was the golden age that gave us scripts that those with some education could understand and admire. The supporting facial expressions, the expert camera work, alas, where are they now?

The reviewers from the American side of the Atlantic always seem to have a strange fixation on the ages of the performers. For me, Ginger Rogers fit the role most admirably, and so, please, her true age here is irrelevant. The only thing I noticed is that this film was set to take place in Europe, although many actresses, such as Ginger Rogers, have American faces. You can often tell a European face, but too bad, Audrey Hepburn was then below 18, not good for the Hayes office. It could be that those on the European side of the Atlantic might notice such things, and otherwise, no problem. No such problem, in fact, for Adolphe Menjou, who, perhaps surprisingly, was from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
