The Smiling Lieutenant

1931 Rated NR 1hr 33m

In this cheerful 1931 musical from director Ernst Lubitsch, Maurice Chevalier squares off against Claudette Colbert and Miriam Hopkins in a dazzling battle of wits. When a sexually repressed princess (Hopkins) has eyes for Chevalier's lusty Viennese lieutenant, sparks fly and songs swell. The female stars of this randy musical steal their scenes with aplomb in numbers such as the delightful "Jazz Up Your Lingerie."
