The original writer, Leo McCarey, declined Samuel Goldwyn's offer to direct. William Wyler began as director of this movie, but walked off the picture after an argument with Samuel Goldwyn about extensive retakes he wanted. Goldwyn suspended Wyler, who did not return as director. However, he and Goldwyn settled their differences, and he did direct Goldwyn's next picture, Wuthering Heights (1939). H.C. Potter was brought in to replace Wyler. Production and script problems resulted in the film going way over schedule, and Potter had to leave before the film was finished due to his commitment to start The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle (1939). Editor Stuart Heisler was brought into finish directing the picture. See more »

I saw this film as a teenager about 20 years ago,and its always remained one of my favourite romantic films.you can easily get lost in the beautiful locations this film is set in.The story is a simple one,with no confusing plot,so you just watch it for the beautiful chemistry between the two stars and the sweet storyline.It shows that films made during this era were far more romantic than that of today,they had lots of innocence about them,today they are handled a bit to heavily and you cant feel as sensitive towards them.I don't really think this film dates at all,i think this film can still be absorbed by a modern audience,as the film is basically about opposites attract which everyone can relate to .And also the two characters are just timeless,their different personalities really compliment each other,i do love this film.
