The flimsiness of the film's foundations and the disorder of its episodes provoke the inevitable impression that it all fell together en route.
Howard Hawks's darkest comedy (1949) -- a loosely constructed, episodic film that traces the progressive humiliations suffered by Free French army captain Cary Grant.
High-spirited subversive loosely structured comedy.
Funny, revealing (about WWII humor) farce w/Cary Grant.
Saddled with an egregiously thin premise and woefully underdeveloped characters...
It's very entertaining.
Howard Hawks and Cary Grant made several famous films together but it's a shame this one is often overlooked since it's a true comic gem that works well on every level.
Very funny star vehicle with Grant and Sheridan at their best.
"Cary carries off a one-joke premise"
A lesser effort by Cary Grant but still worth a cursory once over, why not, as it picks up steam as it goes. Ann Sheridan is a worthy co-star and I wondered why the two were not paired again. The story is a trite bit, lame-o, Grant playing a French officer (who's American is so good that he understands plenty of cultural nuance, like he lived here for years, and so there is no French accent) teamed against his will with an American liaison officer in postwar Germany. Adventures ensue, leading to a haystack rendezvous, and thus marriage. Most of this Grant simply acts as if he's aggravated, but you know he's really not. Sheridan returns the compliment.
Not the best, but not the worst by any means!
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.
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.
