Critic Reviews for A Countess from Hong Kong
Sadly, Chaplin's last picture, a slender, old-fashioned bedroom farce, is a misguided effort in which neither Brando nor Sophia Loren are well cast.
Both the shipboard ball sequence and the climactic scene (both involving dance) are pure bliss, and Chaplin's handling of the widescreen format and color are surprisingly assured.
Audience Reviews for A Countess from Hong Kong
Chaplin's last film and the only one in colors, a funny, delicious screwball comedy with very fine performances by a great cast - except Tippi Hedren, who is not really in tune with the others. And the chemistry between Brando and Loren is phenomenal.More
Although it is clunky and banal at times, this is not nearly the monstrosity that it's made out to be by a lot of people. It's a light, amusing film with good performances from the whole cast, particularly Brando. Although it's repetitive and the humor doesn't always play out ideally, I found it a pleasant enough way to spend my evening.More
