Storyline

Joan Fisk, daughter of the American ambassador to France, is bored with entertaining the wives of visiting V.I.P.s and decides to conduct an experiment. She accepts a date with an American G.I. and tries to prove to her father and his friends that not all soldiers are wolves. But by the end of their first date, when wine, music and the young man's charms have swept her off her feet, she realizes that she may have won more than the bet.

Trivia

The film market became segmented when studios realized that they could release and distribute differing versions of films for domestic and international audiences. In this film, in a scene set in a Parisian nightclub, Joan Fisk (Olivia de Havilland), daughter of the US Ambassador to France and American GI Sgt. Danny Sullivan (John Forsythe) watched a stage revue. In the European version, the dancers were topless. See more »

Goofs

The Senator's wife stated her husband was a "boy wonder" elected to the Senate at age 28. The Constitution requires a minimum age of 30. See more »

Quotes

Cpl. Al O'Connor: [O'Connor and Sullivan have tickets to the ballet] I'll buy the tickets, let's go someplace else.
Sgt. Danny Sullivan: You've never been to the ballet. How do you know you won't like it?
Cpl. Al O'Connor: I've never been skinned alive either. I've got an opinion.

Unfortunately unwatchable
10 May 2003 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

What were they thinking? This movie's script is terrible (cliche after cliche), and it's doubtful that even appropriate actors could have rescued it. Olivia de Havilland looks about 50 here (Myrna Loy is supposed to be decades older, but they look like contemporaries), rather than the ingenue the role calls for. Compare this to Roman Holiday, made about the same time--a wonderful script, marvelously appropriate actors, and enchanting use of its location. This movie represents the worst of 50's film-making--a huge waste of talent.
