Just TOO adorable...nauseatingly so.
18 February 2016 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

I normally like Janet Gaynor films. Despite being a very petite lady, she was a fine actress and excelled in such films as "Sunrise" and "A Star is Born"...but here I found her and the script very difficult to take. Most of the problem is that the film accentuated her cuteness to such a level that diabetics in the audience often found themselves descending into comas due to the syrupy sweet style of the film. Some might like it, but I found it all to be cloying and unwelcome.

Gaynor plays a princess in a fictional central European country. She's been sneaking around incognito and has fallen inexplicably in love with an officer who seems to have little of interest to offer. Henri Garat isn't a particular good actor here and his singing is barely tolerable. None of this makes much sense and the film was very, very slow going as a result. I blame the script, the acting and especially the director for simply making this a sickeningly sweet fairy tale instead of an engaging film.
