Love is "One Hour with You"!

Being in my film library and watched a thousand times, it never fails the funny bone and intellect that there's a Colette and Andre, Mitzi and Adolph in all of us! 

The dashing Andre (Maurice Chevalier) must overcome temptation when his wife Colette's (Jeanette MacDonald) beautiful best friend, Mitzi (Genevieve Tobin), tries to seduce him. Meanwhile, suspecting his wife of infidelity, Mitzi's disgruntled husband (Roland Young) begins pursuing Colette. Directed by the matchless Ernst Lubitsch, this musical romp, set in Paris, was nominated for the Best Picture Oscar in 1932.

The film is a musical remake of The Marriage Circle (1924), the second film that Lubistch made in the United States and in 1932 was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture. The French version, Une heure près de toi, was made simultaneously with Lili Damita playing Genevieve Tobin's role.
