Entertainment Reviews:

USA Today - 01/17/2003
"...An unusual jewel..."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/2012
"The frisky narrative is a grown-ups' game of hide-and-seek, which uses Hans Dreier's high-style art-deco settings as exuberantly as a playground."
Total Film - 01/01/2013
5 stars out of 5 -- "The result is subversive and innuendo-packed, but oh-so-discreet."

Product Description:

Gaston (Herbert Marshall) and Lily (Miriam Hopkins) are a cunning pair of jewel thieves who share much more than the riches they acquire. A loving bond that unites them accompanies the lovers on every job. A merry Parisian widow (Kay Francis) seems ripe to be plucked by this enamored couple. An unlikely love triangle blooms instead when Gaston falls for the beautiful widow's charms and is left to decide between these two stunning, but vastly different, women.

Ernst Lubitsch created films with visual elegance, a razor-sharp wit, and bold sexuality. The "Lubitsch Touch" is most fully evident in this 1932 romantic comedy. Glossy Victor Milner photography, stunning Travis Banton gowns, and suave performances in no way disguise the conniving nature of all parties involved in the film's central love triangle. Nor do the immoral characters hinder the blissful romance. Hilarious dialogue from regular Lubitsch collaborator Samson Raphaelson and co-writer Grover Jones crackles throughout the picture. Flawless in every aspect, this influential work is one of the cinema's greatest romantic comedies.
