    I came into this already loving Cary Grant but somehow managed to have never seen an Audrey Hepburn picture before. They're both amazing in this this, with their considerable wit and charisma a perfect match for the zippy script. Looking forward to seeing this again- I wouldn't be surprised if my rating goes up on a second watch.

    PSA: This is on Prime but in garbage quality, use Kanopy or another provider if possible.

    Visually dynamic, tightly plotted (by the standards of the era at least), and boasting a bravura performance by Louise Brooks, this is probably the most entertaining silent film I've seen so far. A triumph.
