I loved this film. It's hard to get and/or see on TV these days, as many 40s films are. It stars, once again, the unbeatable combination of two of Paramount's top comedy stars, Ray Milland and Paulette Goddard. Goddard the gorgeous, I call her. She wears very luscious clothes and looks fantastic in them. The plot is mistaken identity and Paulette is the one who is being sought. She supposedly has plans of some sort of government secret tattooed in invisible ink on her back. The fun of the film is in all those villains attempting to get Goddard unrobed and catch a gander at the plans, as though that were what the audience was casting their eyes on. As in all screwball comedies, this has a happy ending with our hero and heroine swearing their love for each other in of all places, a turkish bath house.
