Movie Info

Henry Rochard (Cary Grant) is a captain in the French army who is forced to work with the combative but beautiful U.S. Army Lieutenant Catherine Gates (Ann Sheridan). While on assignment in postwar Germany, Rochard and Gates, who can't stand each other at first, have a series of arguments and zany calamities, but then fall in love and marry. When Gates is ordered to go back to the States, Rochard must find a way to accompany her under the terms of the War Bride Act.

    Not the best, but not the worst by any means!

    This is one of my favourite Cary Grant movies, Ann Sheridan movies, and movies of the year 1949. It is so hilarious and perfect for a military romance movie. A must see for Grant fans.

    One of the more contrived Grant films, Cary is perfect as the broad shouldered, debonair, confused as ever bride to his officer wife. A dose of the unfamiliar makes it ever the more believable.

    funny film directed by the more than able howard hawks, starring cary grant and ann sheridan who both put in strong performances with their quick-witted remarks. nothing special but it has sheer entertainment value. ideal for staving off boredom. seeing cary grant dress up in drag was fucking hilarious
