Minnelli's second film suffers from the casting of Lucille Bremer (producer Arthur Freed's mistress) in the lead role, and the public was not crazy about seeing Astaire playing a thief.

Audience Reviews for Yolanda and the Thief

½

Yolanda is just such an awful character, can't get past it and her beyond extreme naivete/stupidity. Nothing in the script is believable, character motivations make no sense.
