"We're to be married--till death do us part!" ... "Oh, they're working on that!"
12 November 2009 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Foppish skewering of the Booth Tarkington novel, previously filmed with Rudolph Valentino in 1924. Bob Hope is dryly engaging as a barber in the French Court of King Louis XV who inadvertently gets his chambermaid-love banished to Spain, following her there while impersonating the Duc de Chandre, a notorious ladies' man who is to be married in an act of patriotism to the Princess of Spain. Seems lengthy at 93 minutes, with a few peaks and valleys in the plotting, and yet it's relaxed and pleasant enough to be palatable to even non-Hope buffs. Still, ace screenwriters Melvin Frank and Norman Panama don't know when to quit, and even the funny tag at the end is ultimately spoiled by unnecessary silliness. A couple of nice songs by Ray Evans and Jay Livingston, a good production, and a funny duel (with Hope's ski-slope nose getting caught in the harp strings) makes for a fitfully amusing time. ** from ****
