      Movie Info

      In the beginning stages of World War II, burlesque dancer Katherine O'Hara (Ginger Rogers) ignores the effects of the war and focuses on climbing the social ladder. When she marries the influential Baron Franz Von Luber (Walter Slezak), Katherine seemingly has it made, but Von Luber might not be the man she thinks. Already suspecting Von Luber's ties to Nazism, foreign correspondent Patrick O'Toole (Cary Grant) must convince Katherine to turn spy on her husband to help the Allies' war effort.

        Here's a curio of the type you don't often see: the Hollywood propaganda machine teaching head-in-the-sand Americans (hhhey, that's like me!) about foreign affairs, specifically the gathering storm in Europe preceding America's entry into WWll. And so debonair Cary Grant and saucy Ginger Rogers (charismatic teachers if ever there was!) lightly dance across Europe, with romantic interludes aplenty between countries (tough to qualify in those years as she plays a woman just married!), just one step ahead of Hitler. Its a fascinating goldmine to students of Americana and of WWll history. There's one particularly interesting segment wherein Rogers and character actor Albert Dekker waltz through a pantheon of Hollywood dialects representing the approved Hollywood version of America that makes this oddity worth viewing all on its own, the strains of America The Beautiful playing softly in the background. As a film to see strictly on its own merits ... ehhh, not so much.

        This is a movie that is part comedy, part romance and part WWII story. The film stars Cary Grant and Ginger Rogers. The story is at the beginning of WWII. Grant plays a reporter that is investigating a story on a Austrian Baron Von Luber that might have ties to the Nazi's. His way in is to the Baron's fiance played by Ginger Rogers. Grant and Rogers have great chemistry. They were both very charming and funny in their roles. The romance in this is the big point of the film. But there are many funny parts in the film. Plus some serious parts like the war and when Rogers character helps a Jewish family escape the Nazi's. They seem to blend all aspects to make for a good movie. I was even impressed that the Nazi's spoke German in the film and they didn't dumb it down for the audience by making them all speak English. A solid entertaining movie overall. A must see for any Cary Grant or Ginger Rogers fan.
