This melodrama starring Robert Taylor and Burl Ives was directed by Henry Koster. An American business executive working in England wants to marry European refugee Elizabeth Mueller, but he is warned by his boss that such things just aren't done. Taylor digs in his heels and eventually finds support from his less hidebound fellow executives. The film was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Costume Design and was the first feature-length movie in black-and-white CinemaScope.
In the first scene of London, the double decker bus footage is back-to-front. All the writing on the buses and advertisements can be seen in the mirror image of what they should be. See more »

Hollywood put a great cast of veteran actors into this film, everyone of them performed to perfection and lets remember, it was made in 1956, and many of these actors were under contract to the studio to perform in certain films. Most of these actors were getting old and even Robert Taylor, (Cliff Barton),"D-Day the Sixth of June",'56 was 44 years of age appearing with a new star, Elisabeth Muller,(Miriam Linka) and had intentions in the film to marry her. Elisabeth Muller made this film her Swan Song and never appeared in an American film after this film. Burl Ives,(George Salt),"Ensign Pulver",'64, was the CEO of a company in New York and considered Cliff Barton his son and planned on him to carry out a great business deal in England. Charles Coburn, (Guy Eliot),"Town on Trial", Cedric Hardwicke, (Mr. Careu),"The Desert Fox: The Story of Rommel",'51, and Mary Astor,(Mrs. George Salt),"The Maltese Falcon",'41 gave great supporting roles. This is a rather interesting film about big business years ago and still seems to apply in the business world today, ONLY WORSE. If you love great veteran actors and love the many films they performed in over the years, this is the film for you.
