This movie takes place during World War I. The map of France on Lt. Gordon's office wall includes Alsace and Lorraine, which weren't returned to France until after the war. See more »
I enjoyed this movie - it wasn't a classic, but it was definitely a cut above the norm. The fascinating part was, in my opinion, seeing Rosalind Russell in a "Myrna Loy" role! It was like watching one of the Thin Man movies - seeing her interact with William Powell, speaking lines like Nora Charles, and even looking very much like Myrna Loy.
