Lombard's last film, and, some argue, her best. Paired with director Ernst Lubitsch, Lombard put in a performance of surprising complexity in this story of a Polish acting troupe trying to outwit the invading Nazis. Lombard and Jack Benny lead the troupe, and their work together is nothing short of brilliant. The complex plot and the comedic take on the Nazi threat may have turned off audiences, as the film wasn't a hit nor critically praised in its day, but is now regarded as a classic.
