Midnight ***** (1939, Claudette Colbert, Don Ameche, John Barrymore, Francis Lederer, Mary Astor) – Classic Movie Review 5178

Director Mitchell Leisen’s delicious 1939 movie bon-bon is the very essence of sophisticated wit and polish. The first-rate cast sparkles as much as production designer Hans Dreier’s luminous sets of Paris. It may be the […]
