According to Deanna Durbin in a letter dated August 2, 1987 to film historian William K. Everson and published in the October 1987 issue of "Films in Review," the actress assertively attests that "Jean Renoir shot two thirds of the film as it now stands. The amazingly brave suggestion of Bruce Manning to shelve it all and do a modern version of "The Taming of the Shrew" was greeted enthusiastically by Jean, and Bruce started to contact writers immediately. Jean Renoir came back the next day complaining of the old war wound on his leg." See more »

Different but oddly uneven romantic comedy-drama...
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.
