Audience Member I liked it. It's a classic old movie that is,just fluff. The chemistry between June Allyson and Robert Walker is great and Heddy Lamar is gorgeous! It's just a sweet romantic comedy. :) Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member good leads in this fish out of water tale Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Very likable, if lightweight, comedy about bellboy, Robert Walker, mistaking beautiful princess, Hedy Lamarr, for a maid, which charms the princess into wanting Walker as her personal assistant during her say in New York City. However, Walker has a crippled girlfriend, June Allyson, and finds himself torn between the charms of beautiful Lamarr and his wholesome, down-home girlfriend Allison. It's certainly not heavy drama, so you can guess that, SPOILER ALERT, Walker does not abandon his crippled girlfriend, but regardless of the silly plot, the characters and actors are all very likable and charming, making the film well worth watching. I've been rather obsessed with Lamarr of late, possible the most gorgeous actress of all time, but someone who has been essentially forgotten. My theory of why she's been forgotten is that she never appeared in any "classic" film. She had some good films, but none of them were ones that stood the test of time. It's as if Scarlett Johansson only starred in film of "Eight Legged Freaks" quality instead of films that will be remembered like "Lost in Translation" or "The Avengers". I'm always pleased to find films by Lamarr that are good, but sadly none of them are ever great. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
