Lubitsch's glissando rhythm is a thin veneer that never softens the essential cruelty of the story

Charming lightweight musical.

Lubitsch pokes sly fun at the antics of his European aristocrats, but concurs with the film's conclusion that beauty is skin deep enough.

Wit and melody swing through Maurice Chevalier's latest picture.

The players are so good, the dialogue (by Lubitsch, Ernest Vajda and Samson Raphaelson) so witty, and the direction so skillful that no one minds the logic lapses.

It's quintessential Lubitsch in the way it suggests sexual dalliance with the brightening or darkening of a gas lamp outside a bedroom.

This is one of Lubitsch's best films, and that's saying a lot.
