Quotes

Paula Lane: Oh, listen, Jonny. Everyone's not like you. You'd rather be a good reporter than... Shakespeare.
Jonathon 'Jonny' Davis: Shakespeare was a reporter. Scooped Queen Elizabeth. That's the thing to do with dames. Scoop 'em, but stay away from all of them.

love and jingoism just never goes out of style
15 May 2002 | by (British Columbia) – See all my reviews

Films like "Somewhere I'll Find You" are great little time capsules. We tend to forget that America has a well-grounded isolationist past even though George Bush represented a return to the philosophy before 9/11. Anyways, this films' primary function was to rev up the homefront and sell war bonds and profile Gable and Turner. It does both well. It accurately forecasts a longer war and an eventual victory. The love story was humorous. The gamesmanship within the threesome tended to get a bit irritating until I realized that it was simply a plot device to keep things moving along as if the War wasn't a sufficient motivator. The more powerful love story was the unstated one between Gable and Carole Lombard. Her death a few days into the filming must have had an unimaginable affect on Gable. I could detect nothing in his performance that measured that. This was not necessarily a good film but there is a small pleasure to be had in viewing it and paying some distant homage to 1942 America.
