The supreme Hollywood entertainment package, set in Monte Carlo and Cornwall, with generous helpings of romance, comedy, suspense melodrama and mystery, all indulged in by strongly drawn characters, and directed by the English wizard from a novel that sold millions of copies. It really couldn’t miss, and it didn’t. (Halliwell’s)
