This is an OK movie. Jose Ferrer plays the Georgian immigrant, George Papashvili whose book, 'Anything Can Happen,' is a classic story of an immigrant adjusting to life in the United States. The book has a charm that this movie doesn't approach. Too bad, as the cast was competent. Kim Hunter and Jose Ferrer don't really create much spark and even Oscar Beregi's character, the chef, dzea Vanno 'Uncle John,' falls a little flat. Ferrer does well, as he always did, playing the Georgian and even sings a charming little song. I might disabuse the other reviewer's confusion by noting that the Georgians are not Slavs (which term is usually reserved for Slovenians) but representatives of a totally unrelated culture living in the Caucasus mountains in Asia Minor. They are a fascinating people and Papashvili's book relates some wonderful experiences here in this new land. Unfortunately, the movie only gives us a sweet little romance but, I guess that's all Hollywood wanted at that time.
