Trivia

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 »

A Good Film For Those Who Like To Think About Characters
1 September 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This film is worthy of better attention than it seems to have received to date. The original novel appears to have been quite philosophical. Powerful comments abound from start to finish...from wasted moments in life, to 'lost souls' on their own 'adventure' to find peace.

I can agree with most comments regards the sharp change in Ms Garson's intelligent character ~ but looking at the many script credits, there was obviously much re-writing to 'lighten up' this work ~ bringing it more in line with a 'post war' public's mood (after all it was Mr Gables first appearance following war service)

There's a great deal of quality: production values are superb, the cast is strong, the Director, one of the best. That grand old man of Movies, Harry Davenport, delivers some of the best lines (almost thrown away) in the final scenes of the film ~ summarizing the relationship of Man with God. Well worth giving this curious work another look (maybe even Mr Maltin threw this one away too easily) Films are personal, judge for yourself. KR..........For those who care to take a little time with their favorites, a few silly scenes can be easily edited out (without any harm to the main storyline) making this film far better than the overindulged theatrical version.
