A pleasant little film.

Actually, there is not much to say about this rare item, produced by Twentieth Century Fox, and directed by the prolific Alfred Werker. A kind of mix-up of romance and drama, soft drama. There were thousand of film like this one, during the thirties and forties. The story of an Irish girl who, aboard an Atlantic liner, meets a war correspondent - Don Ameche. Much talk and plenty of goof feeings in this very common movie. But, I repeat, not unpleasant for most of the audiences fond of old vintage films. But I am afraid to forget it till tomorrow morning, so I hurry to comment it.

Alfred Werker will be most famous to me for his film noirs such as HE WALKED BY NIGHT and also his westerns: LAST POSSEE, DEVIL'S CANYON, THREE HOURS TO KILL...
