| Not great Wilder, but very pleasant anyway!
Don't get too excited by the fact that Billy Wilder has a half-share in the screenplay credit. This film has no bitingly witty lines, and only lukewarm comedy situations.

Despite a mighty attractive cast and a remarkably lavish budget at his disposal, director Thiele has given this mild script little zing. Fortunately, the songs are surprisingly pleasant, the sets and costumes eye-dazzling. We are also treated to two fairish musical production numbers — only one, alas, with girls!

Two other assets make significant contributions to the fun: Bert Glennon's glowing cinematography and editor Dorothy Spencer's uncanny ability to spice up Thiele's flabby footage. In fact, Miss Spencer does such wonders she should have been nominated for an award (as she was for Stagecoach, Decision Before Dawn, Cleopatra and Earthquake).
