Goofs

After their evening of gambling, Matthew goes to Allison's hotel room and she invites him for coffee. Just as he accepts and begins to sit down, the far shot shows her putting her empty coffee cup at his place. The next shot, which is a close shot from her right, shows her again putting the cup in front of him. See more »

Please Believe Me-Believe Me It's A Real Stinker *
25 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just goes to show you when people are under contract.

A stellar cast of Deborah Kerr, Robert Walker, Peter Lawford, and Mark Stevens are put into this absolute classic stinker.

Seems that during World War 11, Kerr met an old U.S. soldier who leaves her farmland that's an absolute piece of junk-just like this movie.

Walker is a con-artist who thinks that Kerr has landed a lot of money and tries to woo her. On board the board, there's Lawford with his 14 million and his lawyer Stevens. Walker has his crony, James Whitmore, who is the only funny person in this.

Scenes include a tie scene which is utterly ridiculous. Naturally, Walker is being financed to fleece Kerr by hoodlum J. Carrol Naish.

The film becomes even more ridiculous when it's discovered that Kerr's land is worthless. Having run up debt, she tries to sell the hotel rug and of course winds up with one of our gallant 3.

A weak plot is further done in by poor writing. Norman Taurog, a great director, who won the Oscar for directing "Skippy" years before is straddled with his mess. He probably needed that dog to help out with this clinker.
