The lead role was originally set to be played by then-German superstar O.W. Fischer, but he dropped out. The official reason was "unbridgeable differences" between him and the director. Fischer later declared the actual reason was his loss of memory during shooting, what had to be kept secret. See more »
I found out exactly the dress she was going to wear, and I had it copied. Then, I walked right up to their table and I said to the girl I considered it an insult to *her* that they sold *me* the same dress, and I would take it right off! She would just have to say the word.
No, but he did.
And so I took it off!

The original is brilliant. But the re-make is sad at best. No matter how much I may love David Niven, he's a poor substitute for Powell. Don't bother with this trash. Rent the Powell/Lombard film (1936). It's one of the funniest films you'll ever see, with hallmark performances by everyone in the cast.
