I think the reason that everyone is so thrilled that the cake is made with real eggs, is that in England under war time food rationing, only powdered eggs were available, which apparently were horrible, and so the cause for so much excitement having something made with the real thing. The fact that so much of it appears to have survived a direct hit from the bombing raid might be testament to it's itegrity. Something else that I find curious is that the fair that Milland attends on his release appears to be held in the dead of night. Apart from that, a mightily stellar film. It's great to see so many faces from the Sherlock Holmes series starring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. I've given it a ten.
