Christopher Reynolds, an American flying with the R.A.F, is shot down over German-occupied Holland and is given shelter by a Dutch family. Posing as the insane husband of the daughter of the house, Anita Wolverman, Reynolds convinces the German officer quartered there, Major Zellfritz, with the necessity for her divorce decree to be granted. After the court-hearing, Anita, goes to manage a home for retired ladies and, persuaded by Reynolds, tries to gain military information from the German Officer. When her former husband escapes from the insane-asylum his exploits are blamed on Reynolds. With the help of the old ladies and Anita, who "remarries" him, Reynolds escapes to England in a stolen German airplane. Written by

Much comedy in this wartime film from Columbia Pictures. American flyer is shot down over Holland. Fortunately they take him in and pretend he is part of the family, starring Joan Bennett an Franchot Tone. And of course, there's a German major (Allyn Joslyn)living with them to confuse things. The running gag here is that "Anita" the wife is trying to divorce her wacky husband. Kind of a three stooges scene in the restaurant where they get the best of the German soldiers. And again in the courtroom, some more slapstick antics that clearly would not have flown in those days. Chester Clute is in here as his lawyer... he was in so many supporting roles as the hotel desk clerk, the judge, the store clerk. It's pretty good. Moves right along, once you get the flow of the film. Similar to the 1942 version of To Be or Not to Be, with Jack Benny. Check it out... its fun! Kind of surprising, for a country that had just gotten into the war. The flyer ends up in a home for the elderly, and the old ladies are catty, funny, and jealous. Makes for some fun jokes. Directed by Richard Wallace. Story by Gina Kaus. Many of her works were made into films, beginning in the 1930s. I recommend this one. It's good.
