Storyline

At the start of WWII, Katie O'Hara, an American burlesque girl intent on social climbing, marries Austrian Baron Von Luber. Pat O'Toole, an American radio reporter, sees this as a chance to investigate Von Luber, who is suspected of having Nazi ties. As country after country falls to the Nazis, O'Tool follows O'Hara across Europe. At first he is after a story, but he gradually falls in love with her. When she learns that her husband is indeed a Nazi, O'Hara fakes her death and runs off with O'Toole. In Paris, she is recruited to spy for the allies; he uses a radio broadcast to make Von Luber and the Nazis look like fools. Written by John Oswalt <jao@jao.com>

Trivia

When Grant comes back to the photographer shop in Paris loaded with a new outfit for Rodger's, he mentions that he bought the clothes at the "shop around the corner." This is likely a reference to the Lubitsch film of a few years earlier "The Shop Around The Corner" and, possibly by inference, "The Mortal Storm," a film starring the same principles and many of the same actors released at the same time - a film that warned of the rise of the Nazis.

Goofs

The photographer says that seven countries have already fallen. At this point, actually eight had: Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, Denmark, Norway, Luxembourg, Holland and Belgium. See more »

Katie O'Hara Von Luber, aka Katherine Butt-Smith: [Talking on a trans-Atlantic phone connection] I'm gonna be married, Mama. Gee, I wish you were here. I always imagined you'd be at my wedding, Mama.
Katie's Mother: [Suspiciously] Is this a hasty marriage, Katie? What's the hurry?
Katie O'Hara Von Luber, aka Katherine Butt-Smith: Well, he comes from a long line of wealthy Austrian people, Mama, and they're all dead.

An uncomfortable blend of tragedy and farce poorly balanced

Grant and Rogers and Slezak should be a prescription for greatness but this is no Monkey Business or People Will Talk -- two much better films. This is one of the most bi-polar movies I've ever seen, attempting to balance tragedy and farce and flippancy == it tips over more than once.
