Trivia

Walter Wanger wanted to make a Vogues movie since 1934 (he signed Frances Langford for it in December 1934), but waited till the Technicolor process reached a higher state of development. Langford was listed as member of the cast till 1937 and it is unknown if there were any scenes with her shot, but she does not appear in the final version. See more »

Absolutely stunning early technicolor movie!
3 February 2000 | by martex34See all my reviews

Have not seen the entire movie as yet, but the mid to end is stunning! The usual story line was palatable but Baxter looked too old. Joan Bennett was super-duper beautiful with lovely speaking voice. Loved Mischa Auer and Alan Mowbray! The costuming was stupendous....furs, hats, ensembles to rave about. As a collector of vintage fashions, I am mesmerized by this spectacle and plan to try to find a copy of this great film.
