Trivia

The racing footage shown early in the movie, supposedly of the 1914 Epsom Derby,was newsreel footage of the Derby of 1934. Franchot Tone's fancy Ragamuffin & Jean Harlow's eventual 20/1 winner Golden Fleece featured in neither race. However a horse named Golden Fleece did win the 1982 Epsom Derby & the owner's wife was named Susan. See more »

Goofs

The film is supposed to take place during World War I. But the clothing used in the film, especially the women's clothing, is clearly in the 1930s style. See more »

Good stuff, but not the best Cary Grant film I've seen
11 August 2001 | by (Massachusetts, USA) – See all my reviews

I would recommend this film for any Cary Grant or Jean Harlow enthusiast but I think I would have preferred Cary Grant in the Francot Tone role. Still, this spy/espionage/war thriller has a decent plot and the story comes together nicely in the end. On a personal preference note, since Cary Grant was playing the role of an ace French pilot I wish he would have spoken with an appropriate accent. Actually, imagining him speaking with a French accent is quite hilarious.
