This film was Clark Gable's first after he returned to Hollywood following his service in the Army Air Corps in World War II. He had joined in August 1942, following the death of his wife Carole Lombard. MGM hyped this film as Gable's big comeback, using the line, "Gable's Back and Garson's Got Him!" in the advertising. Audiences at first lined up to see the King back in action, but the novelty wore off and the film flopped. See more »
Clark Gable's first film after being away in WWII.
Clark Gable returned to M-G-M after his war service in World War II. So naturally, the "King" of M-G-M was paired up with the "Queen," that being Greer Garson. Garson fans were happy to see their star portraying someone young for a change (no mother role here), but Gable had aged about ten years since his last screen appearance. The war and the death of his wife, Carole Lombard, had taken their toll.
