Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that there's nothing very objectionable in this classic film. There's a scene in which the princess tries her first cigarette and another including a frenetic brawl on a barge. Both the male and female leads are good role models by the end of the film. Younger children will be able to follow the plot easily.

Sexual Content

Very mild innuendo.


A large (but relatively civilized) fight breaks out between government agents and dancers on a barge.


Not applicable

Social Behavior

Themes include the importance of honesty and integrity.


Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters smoke cigarettes. Main characters also drink champagne and wine but do not act intoxicated while doing so. A young woman seems like she's drunk -- falling asleep on a bench, slurring her speech, and tripping over her words, and, although the lead male character suspects she's been drinking, she's actually been given sleeping pills.
