The incomparable Ernst Lubitsch brought his light and charming touch to this bubbly adaptation of Franz Lehar's operetta. In the kingdom of Marshovia, Count Danilo woos the beautiful widow Sonia. But she, aware of Danilo's womanizing ways, rejects his advances. Her curt dismissal conceals her genuine attraction to the Count, however, and the emotionally confused Sonia decides to flee Marshovia and Danilo for the charms of gay Paris. Because of Sonia's extensive wealth, her departure leaves the Marshovian royals in a tizzy -- and soon they've dispatched Danilo to the City of Lights with orders to wed the lovely lady. And it is in this capital of romance that Sonia will teach the lusty count a lesson he'll never forget...
"...Ernst Lubitsch directs the best screen operetta ever; beyond the music and cast, it's the elegant camera work that makes this one to see again and again..."
