Time Out says

Classic Lubitsch, disarmingly light in tone but in fact quite astute in its social and sexual satire. Ameche plays Henry Van Cleeve, a dandy who pitches up in Hell believing his past sex life in the naughty Nineties qualifies him admirably for eternal damnation; but as he recounts his story, he emerges as a kindly and sympathetic man. Tierney plays the faultless wife, and Lubitsch handles the whole delightful business with characteristic delicacy. The bonus is the brilliant Technicolor photography which shows off Basevi and Fuller's marvellous decor for Hell to memorable advantage.

Charming Lubitsch great ensamble acting. Lubitsch gets a mature full body perfomance from a 22 yr old Gene Tierney. Dom Ameche is just right. Sit back and enjoy the master.
