Time Out says

The first MacDonald-Eddy vehicle, enormously popular in its day so somebody must have been able to stand this simpering duo. An adaptation of Victor Herbert's 1905 operetta (which perpetrated Ah! Sweet Mystery of Life), set in New Orleans, with MacDonald as the French princess running out on an arranged marriage, kidnapped by pirates, and falling for the stalwart backwoods scout who rescues her. Eddy, believe it or not, addresses her as 'Bright Eyes'. The fine supporting cast is a relief.
