Trivia

Jack Benny:  as himself. About 15 or so minutes in, when Christopher (Kit) Madden (Claudette Colbert) is in the train station, Jack approaches her and asks her if she is Christoper Madden and when she says yes, he asks her to autograph the book she is holding (which she wrote) and asks her to make it out to Jack Benny. He first approaches with is back to the camera, so it's impossible to see who he is, but when he speaks, his voice is immediately recognizable. He then self-identifies to verify the viewer's suspicions, but not until she signs the book and moves on does he turn around and face the camera for the final verification. See more »

Guest Appearance by Cary Grant
24 October 2001 | by See all my reviews

After two years absent from appearing in films, Grant returned to Hollywood after the Second World War in a guest appearance in this John Wayne/Claudette Colbert film 'Without Reservations'. If you blinked your eye, you would miss Grant which means that this was definitely not a Grant film but a John Wayne. However, it was the only time that Wayne and Grant would appear together in a film.
