Storyline

It is early 1939 in Poland when Mrs. Bromley and Jennifer come to buy antiques for her business in London. Jennifer meets Count Stephen and they wine, dine and see the sights though out the city. He wishes to marry, but his family is against plain Jennifer. When she tries to leave, he catches her at the train station and they are married. To be self sufficient, they modernize the family farm with tractors and increase production, but then Germany starts the war. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Goofs

At the ballet, Count Stefan and others in his box use the opera glasses to look down at Jennifer in the audience below. The first shot through the glasses shows her not looking straight up at Count Stefan, but to her right, even though they have acknowledged each other. In subsequent shots through the glasses, the perspectives are far too low and to the front of Jennifer to be from the box above. See more »

Quotes

Count Pawel Orwid: [at the ballet] Stefan, when I was a young man, I came for the ballerinas. Later on I came for the music. Now I come to sit.

What a Great Find!
2 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

Stumbled onto this on TCM ... granted, it's a wartime film to be sure - down to the "Buy War Bonds" cleverly configured Warner Brothers credit at the end, and brimming with patriotic emotion - but incredibly enjoyable/entertaining. I was happily surprised by all the talent in the cast - besides the ALWAYS wonderful Ida Lupino and the wonderfully debonair/attractive Paul Henreid (sigh!), it was delightful to see - albeit briefly - Mary Boland (for an extensive Mary Boland treat, check her out in "The Women"). And the rarely-seen-on-screen Alla Nazimova was illuminating ... while I heard her name being mentioned by the host, I didn't put it together until afterward. Great WWII Western European homefront film - highly recommend it!
