Very old film (1937) is surprisingly entertaining, amusing, clever, pleasing to look at. Good plot, (historical fantasy) excellent actors/actresses. Library owns four films featuring Jacqueline Delubac.
If you like movies of the era, foreign, black and white photography, witty dialog, attractive players, then be sure to catch this one.
Still on the fence? The quote I've posted may help you decide whether to watch the film.
PS: Be sure not to miss the 20-minute special feature on the art of subtitling. Did you know that there are standard for subtitles? (No more than 2 lines of 40 characters each.)
