Trivia

When Wechsberg, played by William Bendix, tells Louise, played by Deanna Durbin, that the kissing scene in the movie they are watching was limited to 8 seconds, he's satirizing the practice some movie studios had at that time in the belief that the decency codes for the movie industry required time limits on kisses. Some studios adhered to a 3-second rule, others to a 10-second, and still others to a 30-second rule. The irony is that while the decency codes broadly and somewhat vaguely prohibited sexually suggestive kisses, there were no limits specified for the length of time a kiss could last. See more »

Delightful Durbin
4 June 2000 | by Greg-o-ramaSee all my reviews

If you enjoy the genre of fluffy musical /comedy /romances that Deanna Durbin was consistently cast in, you will certainly enjoy this one, as it is one of her better vehicles. As believable as any of the silly storylines she had to endure, the supporting cast in this one is above average. Adolph Menjou is particularly enjoyable as the lascivious business magnet with his sites on Durbin. And her performance of "Granada" is worth the price alone.
