Product Details

From director William Wyler (Wuthering Heights, Counsellor at Law, The Love Trap) comes a buoyant romantic fable laced with clever wordplay and ribald comedy, written by legendary screenwriter Preston Sturges (Sullivan's Travels). When a brash movie theater owner needs usherettes for his Budapest cinema, he recruits young Luisa Ginglebusher (Margaret Sullavan) from a nearby orphanage. Encouraged by her kindly guardian (Beulah Bondi) to "spread your wings," Lu na´vely embarks on her quest to live the life of a fairy tale angel. Quickly encountering the debonair wolves that roam the sidewalks of Hungary, Lu randomly chooses a man to play the role of her husband: Dr. Max Sporum, a humble and idealistic lawyer (Herbert Marshall). As Lu's simple ruse grows hopelessly complicated, the dreamy-eyed girl refuses to abandon the charade, determined to evade one suitor's wily grasp (Frank Morgan), provide Max the prosperity he so deserves, and allow the opportunity for true love to enter her life.
