It's hard to believe Marlene Dietrich was in her mid-50s when she starred in this film. Talk about aging well...

Just saw it and absolutely LOVED it! Instantly my favorite from Wilder. Yes, better than Double Indemnity and The Apartment. It just has a certain charm and wit to it even before the twisted ending, which I partially guessed before it unfolded. Just love when I see a movie that I'm instantly glued to. Welcome to my top 50.

I'm surprised to see the global ranking is 242. It should be much higher. Considering the acting and the plot, it should be top 100 easily. Oh well, to each his own I guess. As for me, it's top 20 on my chart.
