Movie star Collier Laing is recalled to active duty with the Army Criminal Investigation Division. His mission: to sweep debutante Marita Connell off her feet and flush out her former boyfriend, who's sent her jewels stolen in occupied Germany. Soon it's a question of who's sweeping whom; Miss Connell's nickname is "Killer." But when she wants to elope, Laing begins to have qualms. Written by

Ann Blyth showcases her fine comedic sense in this warm, often zany film. Nicknamed "Killer," her character is fond of "Passionelle," a perfume which she practically bathes in, and Robert Montgomery, in the role of "Collie," whose mission is to bust her estranged boyfriend for jewel smuggling. One highlight is when Montgomery, a momma's boy, introduces Killer to his mother and friends. Blyth masterfully mines this scene for its full comic worth. "Once More, My Darling" is one gem of a movie with a great slapstick ending.
