This is a gem of a little movie, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys the classic romantic comedies. Unfortunately, it's never been released on DVD or VHS before. I once read something about how there were problems archiving the movie, so that's why it faded into relative obscurity. But who knows. What I do know is that if you like old, feel good romantic comedies, you'll love this film. You should buy it... even though it's, sadly, unavailable. I'm not sure who owns the rights to the film, but they should release it! :(

I first saw this movie approximately 15 years ago on Turner Classic Movies. I absolutely loved it! It's the typical Cinderella story, if you will, but it's delightfully cast and charmingly told. It was nominated for an Oscar for Writing (Original Story).

Directed by William Wyler, Frances Dee stars as a young girl who unexpectedly wins a $5000 lottery, an extraordinary amount of money in 1935. Tired of her expected and ordinary life in a dull job and even duller town, she decides to flee to New York for a month of living a dream. She stays at an exclusive hotel, buys a new wardrobe, and tries to assimilate into high society. Meanwhile, Francis Lederer stars as a mischievous foreign prince hiding out as a bell-boy in the hotel. He's constantly getting fired as a result of his high jinx, but always manages to land on his feet and get his job back, thanks to his optimistic attitude and some interceding by an official of his country.

It's a fun, entertaining, lovely movie that I thoroughly enjoyed those many years ago. I had been searching for the movie via every avenue I could think of. I even wrote to TCM (never heard a word back from anyone). As I couldn't remember the exact title of the movie (by the way, it's also known as "April Folly") or the exact names of the cast members, I was never successful in locating the movie for purchase or rent. I had thought of the movie many, many times over the years, hoping to run across it somehow. The other day I was perusing TCM's website and miraculously found the movie. After searching on Amazon, I decided to buy it here since it was the same price as on TCM and with my Prime membership I received the movie in 2 days and got free shipping. Thanks, Amazon Prime! I should also mention I always order via smile.

As an octogenarian I've been searching for films from the early days of talking pictures. This was a very serendipitous.
purchase for me. Delightfully implausible story line which edges on fantasy. Loved Frances Dee, absolutely gorgeous.
