Greta Garbo once again gives a commanding and strong female lead performance, but the film does come off a little dated, especially in the comedy department. Worth watching for the glamorous Garbo performance or if you're a fan of early Hollywood cinema.

The first time I tried to watch this, I didn't get this. In the meantime I saw some other Garbos and I found it to be a little bit more accessible this time. I laughed here and there but don't get why everyone thinks it's a hysterical comedy. However, it's worth watching.
