Cross dressing comedy
7 February 2016 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

With many German actors and technicians fleeing the Nazis it is little surprise that German stories and themes came with them.Cross dressing was such a theme.They made Viktor/Viktoria which was remade as the Jesse Matthews starring vehicle First A Girl.In between this film.Dolly Haas poses as the grandson of the woman hating Duke.There are some really funny scenes when she is cross dressing.However far too early for the good of the film Edmond Knight discovers she is a girl.After that the film is nowhere near as funny.Haas sings a lovely number,Exit for blues,which was featured in other VIP films without the lyrics.Haas is delightful in this film,and made far too few films.Apparently Columbia signed her but wouldn't use her as she refused to change her name.
