According to a biography of star Dana Andrews, he was very upset that after carefully cultivating the appropriate English accent for his role as the artist, his voice was then "looped" by an English actor (for the British prints only; in the prints for the U.S. and foreign markets outside the British Commonwealth Andrews's voice is his own) whose identity the studio refused to reveal, and who remains a mystery to this day. This was done in an effort to give to British audiences a more accurate accent for someone who would have lived in the mews. However, Andrews, critics, and audiences alike felt it was an inferior performance and obvious job of dubbing. See more »
This was one of my favorite Maureen O'Hara movies (after "The Quiet Man", of course) which I haven't been able to see for many years. I continue to check the DVD status, but continue to be disappointed. Previous comments have told the story-line, so I won't attempt it except to say that it covers the entire gamut of emotions: happiness, sadness, fear, despair, resignation to circumstances, hope--back to happiness.
I hope the "Powers that be" read these comments and release this movie in at least video version if DVD isn't possible. With all the garbage I see being put out on DVD, it amazes me that the better older black and white movies are so overlooked. There are several for which I keep looking and hoping to see available.
