Would you see the same thin film interference pattern in a film of soap surrounded by air and a film of soap on glass? Why or why not?

• physics -

doesnt interference require the boundry on the far side to have a reflection? and that reflections phase shift is dependent on the difference between the velocity of light in the two mediums at the boundry?
