Kismet — * Comedy
Kismet is a screamingly funny film, if you look at it the right way. Marlene Dietrich has shown herself occasionally to have considerable intelligence in screen work, and she must have had her tongue in her cheek with this little number. As for Ronald Coleman, well, he must have been able to act at one stage, the way they talk about him.
