Movie Info

Greta Garbo stars in her last film as a married ski instructor who fears her new husband will be tempted to cheat with his ex-girlfriend when he visits the Big Apple. Posing as her own twin sister, she attempts to lure him away from the threatening woman and put his fidelity to the test. Some critics have complained that the divine Garbo should never had been cast in such a role in this light comedy.

  • Had the script writers and the director, George Cukor, entered into the spirit of the thing with as much enthusiasm, lack of self-consciousness and abandon as the star, the result would have been a smash hit.

  • Garbo's last film, graced by some charming scenes and directed with Cukor's usual flair, but hardly sending her off in a blaze of glory.

  • I still wouldn't hold it up as a sterling example of American wit, but it has its moments, and Garbo does a hell of a rhumba.

  • [Greta Garbo] triumphs in this movie that is destined to have a big success among the public. [Full Review in Spanish]

  • This is a clumsy, lazy film, which reminded me all too painfully of some of our modern-day clumsy, lazy romantic comedies.

    Jan 28, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Just an average romance comedy that hasn't changed the face of the genre, but isn't the waste of time the reviews deemed it as at the time...

    Not the total disaster of legend, hardly Garbo's best but a pleasant trifle.
