Very sweet movie
15 January 2004 | by (San Diego, CA) – See all my reviews

I was very lucky to caught this movie on TCM and I was really entertained by it very much because it's my favorite actor, James Stewart, is in it. I've never had seen Hedy Lamarr in movie before but she is so beautiful as Johnny. They are wonderful as mismatched couple that they got married in first place, in order to keep Hedy from being deported. It's probably my favorite romantic comedy. Go check this out if you get the chance.
