An absolutely delicious, saucy romantic comedy by famed director Ernst Lubitsch -- a pre-Code gem that fell by the wayside after the dullardly Hayes Code swept through Hollywood. Miriam Hopkins, Herbert Marshall and Kay Francis are caught in an unusual triangle, as Hopkins and Marshall, a pair of high-stakes con artists, latch onto the wealthy, sexy -- and resolutely single -- Parisian socialite, Mariette Colet (Francis) and plan to rob her blind. Of course, trouble ensues as the suavely amoral Herbert teeters at the brink of honesty, after he starts to fall for the considerable charms of their intended victim. Kay Francis steals the show with her smoulderingly sensual performance -- and things *really* start to heat up towards the end, when she finally has her way with the dashing young thief -- if you're looking for a "strong" female character in the old, Depression-era cinema, Francis's Colet is a real doozy. Fine supporting roles by Everett Edward Norton, C. Aubrey Smith and Charles Ruggles as well. It may take you a little while to settle into this film's cheerfully salacious wavelength, but once you get into it, it pays off handsomely. A nice, fun movie.
