Lubitsch reunites Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald, this time as a seemingly blissful couple whose marriage hits the skids when her flirtatious school chum comes on to her husband a bit too strong.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
CINEMA _ Lubitsch directing, Cukor assisting, and a nice cast and songs ("Oh that Mitzy !!"). Maurice Chevalier is great because he is already a caricature of himself. Lots of rythm, great lines, open and closed doors : in one word another demonstration of what the Lubitsch's touch is about. (still a little strange to me to watch Chevalier playing in a Lubitsch film and knowing how all that ended...)
Enjoyable little trifle of a pre-Code musical of a happily married couple facing their fiirst hurdles by her best friend's shameless pursuit of her husband. http://eddieonfilm.blogspot.com/2011/02/my-missing-picture-nominees-one-hour.html
