      Ann Ross Maclean's Magazine Claudette Colbert has never given a prettier performance than as the grand duchess, Charles Boyer is engaging as the prince, and Basil Rathbone... is as elegant a Soviet commissar as ever made himself at home in a capitalist parlor.

      Steve D The cast makes it cute enough. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/13/24 Full Review kevin w Following closely on the heels of "My Man Godfrey" here is another Depression era flicker that offers the curious thrill of watching high and mighty types reduced (as it were) to servile positions. This one stars Charles Boyer and Claudette Colbert who are both powerhouse charmers in most efforts, but who are failed by a weak script that strains credulity a bit much to make its point. Still a pleasant enough effort, stolen completely by the smarmy wiles of Basil Rathbone's late entrance as, what else, villain. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review dave j Duchess, Tatiana (Claudette Colbert) and her Prince (Charles Boyer)attempt to elude capturing to prevent returning a large sum of money intentioned for the Russian cause. so they pose as butler and maid. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Although this is a fine comedy, with a great cast, it's not quite up there with the great comedies from the 1930's. Claudette Colbert is always a joy. Nice production, amusing screenplay and an impressive supporting cast. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews
