It's a pity that Cary Grant and Ann Sheridan weren't ever teamed up again, because it's such a wonderful and great chemistry that develops between these two stars!; I'm short of words in praising their talent, especially since at the beginning of the picture they have to "work-out" this weird "love & hate relationship".
Grant plays a french captain on duty in Germany, after World War II, who's had shared too many missions and lots of "experiences" together, with American lieutenant (Sheridan), but in this last mission together, they're going to have (unknowingly) one of the greatest adventures of their whole lives, with exhilarating results!!!
It had been a time since I had laughed so loudly with a movie, `cos, especially, the second half of the movie is plain "irresistible", if you don't get a kick out of this film you might be well dead. I cannot praise enough this pic!
The Copy of the dvd is good indeed, at least it looked OK in my 34" TV Set.
Based upon a story by the real Henri Rochard, Cary Grant plays the french Officer who is part of the occuping forces in postwar Germany who are responsible for getting the country back to it's proper operation. He has a real love /hate working relationship with American WAC Lt. Catherine Gates (Ann Sheridan in one of her best roles)who he has had a number of assignments with in the past.Read more ›
Two aspects of the movie, made in 1949, stand out - Grant, as a French army officer who speaks not a word of French, and the on-location filming which adds tremendously to the overall impression of the film. It is very similar in this respect to Roman Holiday made four years later with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck . A studio-bound version would have possibly turned this from a classic comedy to a forgettable farce.
Highly recommended. One of my all-time top 10.
