Trivia

For its 1945 re-release, screen credits were redesigned so that James Mason, who had originally received third billing in 1942, was now listed above the title, along with Margaret Lockwood, because of their new popularity, and recent successful teaming in The Wicked Lady (1945). See more »

James Mason tries out his Norman Maine act for Margaret Lockwood
28 January 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This film is too simplistic and low budget to be of much interest except for the pairing of Margaret Lockwood and James Mason. I guess these English people were supposed to be French because of their character names, but there isn't much French about the film except for the type of live entertainment in the club. James Mason was quite good doing drunken comedy (see A Touch of Larceny). Odd observance: Margaret Lockwood seems taller than usual beside him in this inoffensive fare. In their two most famous films together, The Man in Gray and The Wicked Lady, they were paired as wonderfully fun to hate villains, but they might have done well as a comedy duo too. Pity it never happened. This film will give you a glimpse of what that might have been like. Enid Stamp Taylor also has a small part. Delightful how quickly people fall in love in these old films.
