Ernst Lubitsch's movie version of Noel Coward's hit stage comedy has always had a certain stigma attached to it, because Lubitsch and the ace writer, Ben Hecht, had had the temerity to use only one single line from the play and to totally alter the construction of the piece. They kept the basic premise---two men and one woman carry on an extended menage a trois---and several plot points, but otherwise they basically re-envisioned the entire story, even changing the names of the characters.
