Having watched Cary Grant in 'North by Northwest', I wanted to learn more about his track record leading up to 'North by Northwest' by watching this film. Don't waste your time on this poorly made film. No wonder it hasn't stood the test of time and has been hard to find for decades. It fails to provide any entertainment value nor are there any interesting characters that we can hook our viewing on. It was produced by Paramount Pictures, but it is not a movie. It's not even a stage play. I don't know what it is or why it got made, and I can understand why this is one of Cary Grant's lesser known films because it is not a movie. However, I understand that to build a career you are going to have some projects that are non-events.
