A Good Resume-Filler For All Hands
18 August 2019 | by bobliptonSee all my reviews

Lily Damita is the toast of the Montmartre clubs, the little friend of Viscount Henri Treville, and a wild dancer. Eric Barclay is an officer of the British embassy. They love each other, but he wants to marry her, and she isn't the marrying kind. So they get married and, his career ruined, they move into a country home where he fishes and she is bored.

It's a plot that was reasonably popular in the late silent era, and this German-French-Austrian production indicates the wildness of the milieu without anything untoward happening, aside from a few shots of Miss Damita naked behind a screen. Director Michael Curtiz depends mostly on over-the-top set design to indicate extravagance, although the climax, set outdoors during a wild storm, has some flair. It's very watchable, although it doesn't add much to the anyone's career, beyond showing competence.
