McKinley B. "Mac" Thompson, American reporter in Moscow, smuggles out uncensored news under the alias "Comrade X," but hotel valet Vanya discovers his secret. Vanya fears for the safety of his daughter Golubka ("Theodore") and blackmails Mac into helping her leave the country. Mac is happier about his task once he meets lovely Theodore, but can he convince her of his sincerity? The anti-communist humor becomes alternately grim and farcical. Written by

The second and final film Hedy Lamarr and Clark Gable made together. It's a fun comedy similar to Ninotchka only in its basic concept, not in context. Hedy Lamarr is just adorable as a staunch communist and we get to see her in a variety of interesting outfits, like the uniform she wears as a streetcar conductor, the "parachute" of a Soviet nightgown, and another much nicer nightie that she looks impossibly lovely in. Clark Gable's sarcastic humor works perfectly in this movie and he's quite amusing. There's some wonderful comedic violence here and there and a chase sequence as funny as the one(s) Hedy did with Bob Hope in My Favorite Spy just over a decade later. Felix Bressart from Ninotchka also appears in this one. Worth a look, it's a good time!
