Storyline

An Englishman has been working in the US so long he now speaks with an American accent. He is drafted into the British Army during WWII but is injured and loses his memory. Because he talks like an American, the doctors repatriate him to the States where he is housed with a New York family. After the war they all travel throughout Europe, searching for the women he still remembers in the hope of restoring his lost memory. Written by Steve Crook <steve@brainstorm.co.uk>

The only good thing is the scenery
27 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Bob Mitchell (Bonar Colleano) is an English man who speaks with an American accent. He's a world-traveling circus acrobat, but after falling off a chandelier in a German bar, he suffers amnesia. He is assumed to be an American. They find clues to his identities with five bank notes from five European countries, each with a different girl's name plus a picture of a baby. Lesley (Barbara Kelly) from a magazine proposes to send him to all five countries in order to find his past. The movie has five local shoots of Rome, Vienna, Berlin, Paris and London. Each one is shot with a different crew including different directors and writers.

The setup is terribly clunky and just an excuse to get Bob to 5 different cities. I do notice that the movie genre is listed as Drama, Mystery, Romance, and War. It's missing Comedy. I think they do try to make a comedy. Of course, they fail badly. Maybe that's why nobody included Comedy as the genre. Bonar Colleano is very wooden and lack the comedic skills. About the only thing that is interesting is the scenery of post War Europe.
