On a surprise visit to a castle on the Italian Riviera, the pointed and deadly barbs fly fast and furious among this group of charming sophisticates, including Turai and his collaborator, along with young composer, Albert Adam, and his prima donna fiance, Ilona. When Albert overhears his beloved being wooed in her boudoir, Turai tells him it is all a silly mistake, explaining to the smitten young man that the passionate scene was merely a rehearsal for a new play. To support his fabrication, Turai stays up all night to write a play, including the overheard love talk. The next day during a public rehearsal, their suggestive dialogue is reborn as an innocent, harmless bit of theatre-play. $15.
