What Charm Did Grant Present to Miss Bergman?

Magical, Magical, Magical, 15 March 2003
Author: TooShortforThatGesture from Los Angeles

One of my very favorite movies. Why? It's such a perfect little gem of a film that it's almost impossible to take it apart to see how it works. It is undeniably a slight film, but it has the elegant simplicity of a fine Swiss watch.

Bergman and Grant's characters live in a world of wealth - fine clothing and food, casual international travel, servants but always come across as real people in a real romance - funny, tempermental, charming, silly, scheming, brilliant, irrational and clever.

The film is one of the great treasures of the romance/light comedy genre.

(Oh. With all due respect to Ms. Down and Mr. Wagner, the fact that this film was remade in the 1990's with Robert Wagner and Lesley-Anne Down is one of the great sins of Hollywood.)
