Trivia

On Mary Pickford's urging, the role of Don Diego was offered to Ramon Novarro. He rejected it, however, because Pickford once stated that his "face and body don't match". See more »

A humourous and inventive film with a fiesty Mary Pickford!
9 December 2001 | by bristolsilentsSee all my reviews

Pickford is impressive as the poor peasant entertainer with whom the King becomes ridiculously obsessed. Having seen some of Pickford's earlier 'little girl', romanticism movies this was a refreshing change and demonstrates how she was able to extend her range given the opportunity, utterly convincing as she is playing the fiesty young rebel as a woman with attitude. She reminded me of our contempory performers such as Madonna. Always amusing and beautifully composed by Lubitsch, whilst not a classic a highly enjoyable film.
