When Lt. Gates and Capt. Rochard come up to the dam, Rochard is rowing. He jumps to the front of the boat to look over the edge. When he does so, he drops the starboard oar into the water. The next scene shows him looking over the edge and when the camera cuts back to the aerial view, you can see both oars are shipped and dry on the boat as he begins to row again. See more »
In this zany comedy, Frenchman Grant is designated as American Sheridan's "bride" by the Army so he can accompany her to America after marrying her. Although the whole film is quite enjoyable, the early parts are the best, featuring the witty banter between Grant and Sheridan, who claim to hate each other. The scene in the hotel where Grant gets locked in Sheridan's room is particularly funny. Hawks, one of the masters of screwball comedy, deftly manages the shenanigans. Other than not even attempting a French accent, Grant is perfectly cast as the hapless bride. Sheridan is marvelous as usual as the kind of woman any man would gladly do whatever it takes to get.
