A very excellent, comical performance by Ginger Rogers in this movie. I particularly like the plot in this movie; its like an unusual, unique comedy version of the classic story portrayed in so many movies of a character gradually descending deeper into crime.
Basil Rathbone runs a school where he teaches Pickpocketing: For Fun And Profit. Ginger plays a young woman who contemplates that lifestyle until she is caught (Adolphe Menjou), and then coerced into "doing a job" for him to see if his errant wife is cheating. Jean-Pierre Aumont is the unsuspecting mark who falls for her. There are many things, you see, going on in this film. None of them successfully garner your interest though. There's just too many irons in the fire. Put this down to a great might-have-been.
The movie has some life when the character of Professor Aristide is around (mostly at the beginning, but then quickly fades. Even Ginger Rogers isn't enough to keep this movie interesting, and is even miscast in her role.
the story was rather unique thou its too fairy tale still. but overall it's always lovely to see ginger rogers on screen isnt it? :)
Darling..A very cute old movie.
Let's get this out of the way right off the top, Ginger Rogers is too old for her part in this film! True she looks very lovely and far younger than the 35 years she was when this was made, perhaps 25 or 26, but she is supposed to be an 18 year old escapee from a reform school and there is no amount of soft focus that could make that believable. As far as the rest of the film it's a mediocre effort wasting the other two assets it has on hand, Adolph Menjou and Basil Rathbone, in small parts. A forgettable enterprise, all the stars have made better films that should be sought out instead.
Crime isn't cute or charming.
This film is great, I love it, Basil Rathbone is a perfect bad guy.
Love it, love it, love it! except for the fact that Basil Rathbone is playing a bad guy...how could he? He is Sherlock H.!
AMUSING COMEDY ROMANCE. NOT ONE OF GINGER ROGERS BEST, BUT IT'S STILL FUN. BASIL RATHBONE IS GREAT IN A SUPPORTING ROLE.
