The Girl Downstairs ★★★½

This movie is SO precious! Franciska Gaal is absolutely sparkling and memorable here, reminding me of Luise Rainer with a splash of Zsa Zsa Gabor. I was recommended this film because of Reginald Gardiner, but he's hardly in it, as great as his few scenes are. Franchot is always a charming and underrated leading man, though his role here is a bit less likable than some of his others. The romance is delightful though, and this is one of the better films I've discovered so far this year. My biggest gripe is the random dude who comes in at the very end and completely ruins the ending. You know the one. What gives? Other than that, really great!
