It's the biggest surprise this star ever handed you - a rip-snortin' romance of Yankee pep and Spanish fire, with MAE MURRAY as a Mexican madcap. MADEMOISELLE MIDNIGHT is some sweet mama.

Dated Programmer,Scholarly Interest For Die-Hard Murray Fans
17 July 2003 | by stephen6387See all my reviews

Romance set in Old Mexico. Success in its time which raises the mystery of how the passing of years renders a popular film of the time into a work today's audience will wonder where our grandparents' found its appeal. Proof of how popular culture struggles to endure. This is by no means a bad movie, in fact a typical silent programmer, well acted, directed, art directed. But only for scholars and Murray fans today. Mae (as a brunette) looks great, changes into elaborate costumes several times and works in a high quality dance number -- each being standard Murray film trademarks.
