Storyline

Philip Sutherland is an American news writer stationed in Moscow since the war; while there he falls for a Russian ballet dancer, Marya Lamarkins, who, he finds out, learned English because she fell in love with him. They marry, only to find that the Soviet nation which gladly collaborated with the Allies against Hitler has become a paranoid police state in peacetime. Sutherland is forced to leave without Marya, but he's determined to get her back, whether it be through proper channels, or through dangerously improper ones.

Pretty Terrible
31 December 2004 | by (NY, NY) – See all my reviews

This movie is bad but not in an interesting or entertaining way. Its politics are kind of peculiar. Its plot is minimal. And Clark Gable looks rather heavy and unengaged. (Did men during this period actually swim in old fashioned two-piece bathing costumes? If not, why were swimming scenes included?) Gene Tierney was a beautiful woman and a good actress under the right circumstances. She's touching in "The Ghost and Mrs. Muir" and amusingly over-the top in "Leave Her To Heaven." However, casting her as a Russian ballerina? She doesn't sound or look Russian. She looks ravishing but the whole movie is exceptionally bad.
