A business tycoon decides to wed a Middle Eastern princess whose customs dictate the pair must live apart for several months before marrying; even more complications settle in when the tycoon's ex-fiancée is assigned to chaperone the pair.
After marrying an American lieutenant with whom he was assigned to work in post-war Germany, a French captain attempts to find a way to accompany her back to the States under the terms of the War Bride Act.
As a Cary Grant fan, I enjoyed this movie tremendously. The humor was light hearted and the plot sweet, which can now be interpreted as sick, demented and freaky. A nice change from the ritzy movies of the 40s where everyone is wealthy in top hats and tails. This is a down to earth movie and should be taken with the girl meets boy girl gets boy idea in mind. As for the stalking, it seems to me she put a lot of work into getting her man so to speak in a nice way. Never once did I see it as "spook" movie or psycho thriller. However, if there was a remake in 2006, it most certainly would come out to be an R movie with a lot of gore and hype. Enjoy for the era.
