(aka 'Mariage incognito ')
Vintage George Stevens comedy, dating from the brief period in which his deliberate style was a deepening virtue, stopping short of the ossification that cursed his later work. College professor James Stewart marries showgirl Ginger Rogers; Beulah Bondi and Charles Coburn are the parents who must be mollified.

Bromberg Introduction (In French only) 1:38
The image quality is not bad considering the transfer is from analog and hence has ghosting in horizontal pans. There doesn't appear to be excessive boosting and blacks appear quite pitch. A remarkable comedy with a unique pairing - I believe Rogers/Stewart's only film together!?! The only extra is the Bromberg intro - in French only with no optional subtitles. This is the type of release that will go out-of-print. Fans of the era should consider purchasing sooner rather than later.
Ohh, and , of course, the excellent news, as with most all Éditions Montparnasse releases - the French subtitles are removable.
