Not the kind of screwball comedy you expect from Lubitsch, but since I’m not too fond of what I’ve seen, that was fine with me.  There’s a few gags, and pretty good ones, but for the most part it’s closer to a romantic drama.  Think Brief Encounter with a lighter touch.  Marlene Dietrich is growing on me, a lot.  Her performance is the most interesting aspect of this movie, which is otherwise somewhat uneventful and predictable, without the melancholic elegance of Lean’s film.  Loved the ending, though.  Rating: 7
