Movie Reviews

CelticWomanFanPiano | 03/22/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie was at first reminiscent to me of "Easy Living" with Jean Arthur, in that all of a sudden a poor girl ends up being mistaken for being wealthy and eases into high society. However, there are so many twists and turns in this plot, that I was at the edge of my seat. Claudette Colbert, who is probably one of the most natural actresses ever, portrays an American who ends up penniless in Paris. By chance she walks into an elite concert and is mistaken for a Baroness. Seeing this as his opportunity to gain back the affection of his wandering wife, rather than unmasking her, this ultra well-to-do fellow encourages her in her charade and better yet, foots the bill! However, the hard working poor guy is in the picture as well in the form of Don Ameche. And you'll have to watch the movie to figure out the ending. But you won't regret the time spent on it!"
