    One of my favourite French directors from the period gets his chance with the great Dietrich, and in his American debut to boot. It's always a treat to see his comedic insights, this time set on a beautiful woman who's worn out her welcome everywhere else, yet while trying to make a fresh new start of things, gets embroiled in a bizarre love triangle with two completely different types of men.

    The unfortunate part is that Dietrich did not dress as a man as she did so often in the 1930's, causing outrage. Outrage! She did dress up like her make-believe cousin in an attempt to fool some dudes, at least the cousin could have been a man. That would have made the film slightly different, I think. Her fans in the queer community probably would have liked it more.

    Very entertaining story with Marlene giving a wonderful performance. She is always fascinating to watch. Great costumes, good art direction. It's always interesting and the supporting cast is great.
