The lead role was originally set to be played by then-German superstar O.W. Fischer, but he dropped out. The official reason was "unbridgeable differences" between him and the director. Fischer later declared the actual reason was his loss of memory during shooting, what had to be kept secret. See more »

I saw this film when I was a kid; it was great, I loved it, and I had no idea it was a remake. Later, thanks to Turner Classic Movies, I got to see the B&W original with William Powell and his former wife, Carole Lombard, which deserves its legend status, but I still say that the Niven/Allyson film is an inspired remake and loads of fun. I urge everyone to see BOTH films and and appreciate the work of four talented actors.
