Lubitsch's charming operetta, based on Franz Lehar's popular work, features great star turns by Maurice Chevalier and Jeannette MacDonald in their last teaming together.

Not Lubitsch's best, but still Lubitsch

The chemistry between stars Maurice Chevalier and Jeanette MacDonald seems as tasty as a French pastry.
