Editorial Reviews

When a clergyman's daughter (Loretta Young) is swept off her feet by a debonair magician (David Niven), her life becomes a sudden whirlwind of travel, excitement and death-defying feats. But when the magic wears off, she attempts a disappearing act of her own. Nominated for an Oscar for its lively musical score, this charming romantic comedy comes with a healthy side-order of adventure. The film's climax also features some wonderful location footage shot at the 1939 World's Fair in New York!

3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant movie,poor print. May 27, 2000
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
The movie itself is by no means a classic - similar comic confections were served up far more enticingly by the likes of Garson Kanin,Wesley Ruggles and Ernst Lubitsch - but Niven and Young are effective enough,and the idea at the heart of the movie is strong enough to survive the mediocre script.The print,however,is dreadful -it is like watching the movie through the bottom of a glass- and,as the video is recorded in EP mode (why?),your VCR may well struggle with its tracking for the 110 minutes of the entertainment.Why this is labelled as a "Collector's Edition" is a mystery:avoid this edition,go for the other one and watch a slight but amiable comedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, Enjoyable Flick June 9, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a fun movie with a bit of a serious side. We really enjoyed watching a very young David Niven and an even younger Loretta Young. It even has a bit of stage magic thrown in, which was almost as fun as the rest of the movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Vintage September 29, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Lighthearted, predictable, but entirely enjoyabe. Zazu Pitts is the glue that holds a good deal of the premise together. This is a film that epitomizes the productions of it's time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eternally Yours September 6, 2012
By t_girly
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I am a fan of Loretta Young and of the old Glamour days of Hollywood so I am a little biased in saying I really liked this movie. That being said, it was a fun movie to watch with the bantering between the two major characters played by Loretta and David Niven. Someone gave this movie a negative rating by saying by the end of the movie they didn't care who ended up with whom...I beg to differ! These two characters belonged together and with the twists and turns and humor I was certainly rooting for them. Loretta looks gorgeous of course, (it was made around 1940's) without a hair out of place and gorgeous gowns, but that was the allure of it all, wasn't it? Niven plays a magician/daredevil type and it was interesting to see some of the tricks of that trade included in this love story. A comedy/drama, it kept my attention. Not saying it was a Bette Davis "Jezebel" movie (God, did they get any better?) but it was worth adding to my collection. If you are not a fan of old movies you may not agree with my assessment, but if you like these old ones, you will probably like this one. The actual movie was in great shape as far as sound and very clear picture, but I did notice at least one small scene was left out. Nothing major, but I've seen the movie before, so I noticed. True fans do that kind of thing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Look Into My Eyes, While I Mesmerize. . . June 3, 2010
Format:VHS Tape
This review is for the movie and not the format--there was not a place to review on the DVD page. Viewers have complained about the quality of the VHS, but aside from that the whole flim was shot in what I call "soft glow" a vaseline on the lens type effect and it does add a mysterious dream-like quality that is at times beautiful.
David Niven plays an ACE magician that enchants audiences. His Houdini-like stunts seem impossible. Loretta Young's character is his capable assistant and they have much on-stage chemistry for the audience to behold. They are very complementary to each other's needs so they get married--today, I suppose we would call that co-dependency. They have a circle of friends that include such fine character actors as Broderick Crawford, Eve Arden and Zasu Pitts filling the scenes with gay banter. Niven trys to push the limit on each new stunt, the most outlandish being his trick of jumping out of an airplane while his hands are too confined by a straightjacket and handcuffs to pull the rip cord on his chute until the very last moment. Each time he makes it back safely, nail-biting, hand-wringing Loretta makes him promise it will be the last time he does the stunt. He is addicted to pushing the limit and can't stop. Finally she walks out on him, unwilling to go through the torture any longer, and marries Broderick Crawford on the rebound. He is safe and boring. Niven almost dies when his chute, with him attached, lands in a lake. He is pulled out right before he drowns. He has tried to get Loretta back even to the point of getting into fisticuffs with Crawford, and she runs to his side as he is injured on the dock.

3.0 out of 5 stars basic soap opera January 13, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The sound on this DVD has a ton of background noise - like listening to a movie in the shower. Loretta Young spends a lot of time looking as beautiful as she can and David Niven is good as the Houdini type magician. Escape artist stuff does have some tense moments. Skims over the story and by today's standards doesn't involve you enough in the characters so that you care what happens to them.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful, fun movie December 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
While some of the events in the movie are a little cheesy or unbelievable (David Niven as a Magician and Loretta Young's other love interest), the storyline and the chemistry between David Niven & Loretta Young makes this movie definitely worth watching. This black & white movie has suspense, love & drama. It's a wonderful movie and I would recommend you watch it

Classics are my favorite comfortable, clean movies. No foul language here, just a good story. Great actors in an old black and white film.
