I encountered this movie again the other evening. This is a quite horrible movie despite a typical but reasonable storyline and a generally wonderful cast. It features great supporting players like Myrna Loy, Adolph Menjou and a longtime favourite Edward Arnold. It could have been a sweet love story had the producers only had the wit to cast a capable young pair as the love interest. But of course two young actors would not have provided the marquee names that some thought necessary to fill those theatre seats. So instead they offered us a 38-year-old John Forsythe as the clever GI and a 40-year-old Olivia de Havilland as the ambassador's daughter; this must rank as one of the worst casting decisions of all time.
