This film is an unexplained "sleeper".. Wonderful cast and plot, and the song " I Want The World To Know" as sung by Nino Martini is unforgettable. Film difficult to locate and purchase, and copies available are poor (at least mine is), but most comes through reasonably well, and when it does, a splendid and nostalgic tribute to the lost genius of Hollywood to produce classic entertainment on low budgets. Don't miss this one. For some reason, this film is not included in any of the listed ones of Joan Fontaine. In this film, her performance is adequate and her appearance unflattering, and this may be the reason why she may not wanted to make known her performance in it. Of course, the film was probably one of her first ones, and in which, unfairly I believe, she considered her performance very poor.
