The text (also done as silent), co-scripted by Billy Wilder, seems ideal for the Lubitsch touch, and yet the tone is incongruous and overall the film is disappointing.

Lubitsch's classicism gets continually cracked by the unruliness of the screwball genre and by the caustic thrust of the Billy Wilder-Charles Brackett screenplay

Wilders and Brackett's screenplay has some laughs, and Lubitsch knows how to get the most out of the least, but this movie was a mistake to make in the first place.

Although it's not a bad comedy by our current depressed standards, it has the dickens of a time trying to pass off Gary Cooper as a multi-marrying millionaire.

Fluffy, but fun and worth watching for the great Horton as Colbert's financially embarrassed father.

Ernst Lubitsch seems to be resting on his cliches in this atypically inelegant 1938 comedy.
