Directed by Ernst Lubitsch | 1934

With Maurice Chevalier, Jeanette MacDonald

“Lubitsch brilliantly exploits Cedric Gibbons's opulent sets, but his genius is most evident in the film's final poignancy—a farewell to the genre he helped to create.”
—Dave Kehr, Chicago Reader

The famed “Lubitsch touch” is on full display in this elegant, naughtily Pre-Code operetta starring superstar duo Chevalier and MacDonald. He’s a playboy count, she’s the wealthy widow he sets out to seduce. MGM spared no expense, and it shows in the lavish sets designed by the studio’s art director extraordinaire Cedric Gibbons.
