(Sorry, one more digression; quickly, I promise. Only mentioning the great Supporting Cast hardly does them justice, but that's Nina Foch as Marie Antoinette. She pops up in so many fun things, from Boston Blackie's Rendezvous to Spartacus, but I always think of her as Milo in An American In Paris. And that's John Litel as Dubuque in The National Assembly; one of my favorite character actors. We talked about him in They Died With Their Boots On and San Antonio. And then there's Lewis Stone; de Valmorin Sr. in our film today. Not only did he have a truly amazing career in his own right -- and not just as Judge Hardy in that famous series -- but he was also in the 1923 Scaramouche where her played, wait for it, The Marquis.)
Nope, not overselling it at all.
