The acronym "IRA" (a common acronym for the Irish Republican Army) can be seen etched into the background over Ann Blyth's right shoulder at about 3 minutes and 55 seconds into the film. A few minutes later, the letters "RA" can be seen over Bing Crosby's right shoulder when he is in the jail. Presumably the "I" is hidden in the latter scene. See more »

This was a very enjoyable movie. The plot sounds silly, but the script is quite witty and the characters are really well done. Barry Fitzgerald and Hume Cronyn are especially good as the police sergeant and his assistant. Bing Crosby plays Bing Crosby, but that's ok with me, since the songs in this one are lovely to listen to. The plot however, does turn surprisingly dark towards the end, but that's a minor point. I watched this on AMC so I'm sure it will play again sometime......if it's on, watch it......you won't be disappointed.
