Trivia

One of over 700 Paramount Productions, filmed between 1929 and 1949, which were sold to MCA/Universal in 1958 for television distribution, and have been owned and controlled by Universal ever since. Its earliest documented television presentation took place in Johnstown, Pennsylvania Monday 14 December 1959 on WJAC (Channel 6); thanks to the presence of a young Cary Grant, in one of his more or less forgotten, early efforts, it was eventually aired in San Francisco 20 January 1960 on KPIX (Channel 5), in Toledo 25 June 1960 on WTOL (Channel 11), in Grand Rapids 26 August 1960 on WOOD (Channel 8), in Cleveland 11 November 1960 on WJW (Channel 8), and in Chicago 12 December 1960 on WBBM (Channel 2). It was released on DVD 19 April 2016 as one of 18 titles in Universal's Cary Grant - the Vault Collection, and again as a single 12 October 2016 as part of the Universal Vault Series. See more »

Mediocre romantic comedy; hampered by a lack of chemistry between Lundi and Grant
13 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Heavily inspired by the success that opera singer Gracie Moore had found with picture ONE NIGHT OF LOVE, the considerably less successful ENTER MADAME follows the turbulent relationship between an Opera prima donna (Elissa Landi) and a wealthy fan (Cary Grant) as her career frequently interferes with the quality of their off-again/on-again marriage. The Italian-born Landi (whose singing voice is agreeably dubbed by Nina Koshetz) captures the appropriate poise and aura of a true diva, and Grant lends her able support, but the two have no real chemistry in their scenes together, which causes much of the film to fizzle. Although the simple story is effectively plotted, nicely placed, and features winning supporting performances by Lynne Overman, Frank Albertson, and Adrian Rosley, the picture is simply never able to fully recover from the lack of interest in the relationship between to film's two central characters. It becomes difficult to care much about the characters played by Lundi and Grant after their admittedly entertaining first meeting, and this prevents the otherwise well-made film from rising above mediocrity.
