• It Happened One Night is her best performance but this really isn't far behind.Not only does she look at her best but plays her comic and dramatic scenes quite brilliantly. Plenty of her later comic roles lacked the freshness and sharpness of this 1932 film.Hidden Gem is too often used to describe films but if you are a fan of Colbert ,then you need to watch her performance. The film is not as funny as it could be but it has its moments and is well worth a watch. Edmund Lowe was excellent as the love interest for Colbert.I would go as far to say that his quick wit and comic timing were as good as any leading man I have seen her work with. The worst part of the film is the mad Napoleon character who totally overplays the role and really isn't that funny
