Concerning his participation, Douglas Sirk said in an interview with Jon Halliday in 1971 that he did some work on preparing "Never Say Goodbye", that he brought over Cornell Borchers from Germany and that he re-shot scenes with George Sanders on the latter's and the studio's request. See more »
Undistinctive but enjoyable tearjerker: American doctor loves/loses/finds Vienna nightclub entertainer. The skillful screenplay mixes motherhood, medicine and the Iron Curtain, plus manages a few provocative digs at American male behavior. Rock Hudson and George Sanders give appealing performances.

Old-fashioned, but done with some dignity.
