This film stars Laurence Olivier as a Russian inventor. In Europe to promote his new propeller device, Olivier is put off by English customs and manners -- or, rather, the lack thereof. However, when Russia and England become allies against the Nazis, Olivier is welcomed with open arms.

Audience Reviews for The Demi-Paradise

Endearing Russian Engineer comes to America to meet Ship Builders with his Propeller, & puts his Foot in his Mouth often & offends people but makes friends & helps the WWII Effort.Very Cute, & great accent & acting on the part of Laurence Olivier.
