An extremely witty, well-paced comedy which plays beautifully today. The story is set in Paris where Colbert is a struggling showgirl. Wealthy Barrymore believes gigolo Lederer is paying too much attention to his wife Astor, so he hires Colbert to keep Lederer occupied. Ameche plays a taxi

driver who has fallen in love with Colbert. When the group goes to Barrymore's chateau in Versailles, Colbert is constantly in danger of being exposed, and the plot is further complicated when Ameche arrives, posing as her husband. Colbert was never better; ditto most of the cast. Leisen's

direction (along with KITTY his finest effort) and the cynical Brackett and Wilder script complete one of the masterworks of 30s romantic comedy.
