| An Absolute Classic!
The Russian silent cinema does it again with this wonderful comedy starring Anna Sten. She's such a delight that one watches this film in awe at the near-genius with which Samuel Goldwyn managed to transform her during the thirties into such a pudding - and one of Hollywood's biggest industry jokes - attempting to mold her into a second Garbo.

Director Boris Barnet throughout makes dynamic use for comic effect both of the frame and of the movement of characters within it, both indoors and out in the snow; an additional bonus being the fleeting views of twenties Moscow provided in some of the outdoors scenes. The entire cast throw themselves into the proceedings with infectious gusto; and one would have liked to have seen more of Eva Milyutina as the maid, Marfusha.
