Movie Info

Journalist McKinley "Mac" Thompson (Clark Gable) is on assignment in pre-World War II Moscow and secretly files uncensored stories critical of the Stalinist government with an American newspaper. Hotel valet Vanya (Felix Bressart) discovers his true identity and blackmails him into spiriting his beloved daughter, a Communist streetcar driver who calls herself Theodore (Hedy Lamarr), out of Russia. Mac agrees to get her out, but faces obstacles of farcical proportions.

  • May 13, 2021
    A lighthearted one-joke romcom with Clark Gable and Hedy Lamarr. He's an American reporter exposing the constant barrage of Soviet lies and she's a loyal Soviet citizen spreading the truth of Communism - can they find love together? Made with a cast of familiar character actors there's nothing serious going on here but the chemistry of the leads. A little fun.
