It was not an easy play to make into a movie because the action centers about a gentle schoolmaster, but [director Harry] D'Arrast made a good job of it by getting a fine performance from John Barrymore. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- It might have grandly worked back in the day, but its comedy is inert and its presentation is stagy for modern tastes. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Topaze is something of a pre-code comedy, but there is so much thought and sophistication crammed into its 78 minutes that it seems a shame to describe it in such vulgar terms. Full Review
