User Reviews

Different but oddly uneven romantic comedy-drama...
18 November 2001 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Sentimental tale of a young schoolteacher in war-torn China who sets out to rescue war orphans and take them to America. As in all of Deanna's movies, the plot thickens when she tells a little white lie that has her posing as the widow of a wealthy sailor. Barry Fitzgerald is in on her little scheme and Edmond O'Brien, as the old Commodore's grandson, is soon infatuated with her. It's a sentimental story and, unfortunately, none of it rings true but somehow Durbin overcomes the inadequacies of a weak script and tosses off her songs with grace and authority, as always.

Nominated for Best Scoring of a Dramatic or Comedy picture in 1943.
