Storyline

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.

Wonderful, breezy comedy.
2 February 2001 | by (US) – See all my reviews

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.
