Storyline

One night socialite banker Baron Cassini attends the stage show of Eugene Charlier, who resembles him and imitates him in his act. The Baron is attracted to Charlier's jealous stage partner Mimi, while Eugene has similar ideas about Baroness Genevieve. When financial reverses lead to the Baron's disappearance, his frantic partners enlist Charlier to impersonate him; Mimi picks that night to take the Baron up on his invitation; and that's just the beginning...

Simply marvelous music-comedy starring one of my favorites, Maurice Chevalier. Chevalier is at his usual debonair, charming, mischievous in this little gem of a film, impersonating entertainer Eugene Charlier and aristocratic Baron Fernand Cassini, with a very amusing plot based upon mistaken identity antics.

His two leading ladies are both gorgeous: lovely, beautiful,elegant, sophisticated, regal, Merle Oberon as the Baroness and gorgeous, down-to-earth, fiery, ravishing Ann Sothern as Mimi, Charlier's partner.

A couple of huge production numbers featuring Chevalier and Ann Sothern add for more fun.

Above all, those were the days when Hollywood had such gifted and priceless talented character actors as Eric Blore, Halliwell Hobbes, Robert Greig et al, who were fantastic playing a variety of butlers, sidekicks, serious politicians etc., supporting perfectly the stars.

Completely enjoyable classic film from start to finish. Try to catch it on the FOX Channel.
