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.

An Interesting and Surprisingly Good Film
3 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very enjoyable indeed. I always enjoyed the stoic acting of Paul Henreid anyway and to see the very attractive and talented Ida Lupino at age 26 was a treat.

The important idea of a beau, either male or female, not being good enough for the family into which he or she's becoming a part of through marriage, is ancient. I know that here in the USA, it reigns galore but of course from studying history, I had learned that the "quality" of the beau in aristocratic Europe families was intense. Like for instance, here in the USA, family crests and all that jazz are meaningless but not so in Europe. There, lineage, pomp and ceremony are of supreme importance.

This is why Ida Lupino's entrance into the family of Count Orvid's of Poland is fascinating. It was like pitting the old Brooklyn Dodgers against the mighty New York Yankees in so many World Series games. Obviously in the film, Dodger Lupino didn't stand a chance except for uncle Leopold Baruta's warm understanding of why aristocracy shouldn't destroy love.

In the meantime, this enchanting love story is set in the backdrop of maniac Hitler's preparations for invading Poland. The film therefore has tension cleverly wound within the fabric of the entire film. And what will happen to the love affair and marriage of Ida and Paul once Hitler attacks? See for yourself--it's a good movie on Turner Classics.
