    Claudette Colbert leaves her boring, smothering fiance behind to go on a solo vacation to gay Paris for her first, and possibly last, taste of freedom. Somewhat disillusioned there, she meets a slimy jerk (Robert Young) and a dull cynic (Melvyn Douglas), both of whom instantly vie for her affections. The slimy jerk is, unbeknownst to her, married; the dull cynic, unmotivated by anything in life, can't be bothered to warn her of that fact. Now, with choices like that, who's a girl to choose in the end? (The real question should be: Why would she choose any of them?) This movie could have easily been a dud with anyone but Claudette as its leading lady. She brings a witty freshness and emotional truism to an otherwise routine story. The Switzerland segment is especially good, as one wild and hilarious part with them bobsledding quickly turns into a tensely harrowing scene. The skating scene is also a high point of the film, and the outdoor direction and cinematography are superb. I find this film to be entertaining and enjoyable despite its frustrating story premise and the presence of unappealing male co-stars (most particularly Young) for a lead actress who deserves far better in both categories.

    • 7/2/10

    Enjoyable classic, with a rather typical and ordinary plot from the 1930's and early 1940's. But stars Claudette Colbert, Robert Young and Melvyn Douglas make it all worthwhile. Light and entertaining, fine score and cinematography.
