I love this film and watch it a lot. The ending is a bit sappy, and generally I turn it off after Joan tells Clark that she's not really in love with him. It's funny how many writers say they like it because of the "feminist" issues. Isn't it enough that the acting is good, the comedy is sophisticated and Joan sings a wonderful song in German, French and English? (The writer who said Bing Crosby did it better is just silly; how can one compare the two singers?) Are movies more valuable because they're about "important" themes? Is all the literature we've treasured over the centuries great because of anything other than it reflects the realities of love and life and death?
