Movie Info

When out-of-work showgirl Eve (Claudette Colbert) arrives in Paris with no work in sight, she asks taxi driver Tibor (Don Ameche) to drive her from club to club. But the more time she spends with Tibor, the more Eve realizes that he is falling for her. Unwilling to accept his feelings, Eve escapes to a charity concert, meets the charming Georges (John Barrymore) and disguises herself as a Hungarian baroness. But love-struck Tibor is not willing to let Eve go without a fight.

Audience Reviews for Midnight

  • Jan 10, 2012
    The script is everything in film. Coming from one of maybe the greatest years in the old Hollywood studio system comes this delicately prepared light lunch for a summer's day of a film, pure escapist comedy. A down-on-her-luck, been-around-the-block golddigger meets the man of her dreams (and he's barely making it) right as her chance for a big payday materializes. What will she do? The writing team of Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett dreamed up this witty concoction where everyone has a certain native intelligence, and filled it with plenty of what their target audience wanted to see, which is mainly that being rich wasn't everything. So you get your lifestyles of the rich and famous, yes, but portrayed as boredom on ice, and lacking the real connection and passion that a "regular life" supposedly brings: a real crowd pleaser. Mitchell Leisen knew the type of fabulous rich we imagined and, for his part, portrays that spot on. It does look good. The stars are attractive, particularly Colbert, Ameche, Barrymore, Astor and, in a whimsical small role, Monty Woolley. Makes one wish for the old days.

    A few too many screwball twists in this one. Fun in parts. Wilder maintained Leisen messed up his script.

    This movie had a really funny story, but it gets predictable and a little long towards the end. Overall, I enjoyed the movie, but it could be better.
