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 »

This is a re-make of the 1936 classic starring William Powell and Carole Lombard. Those 2 powerhouses practically guarantee a great film. The original has received much critical acclaim. However, the film was "dark" and had a "message" (a political one). I much prefer this lighter romp with David Niven and June Allyson. Niven's at his charming-est and Allyson at her perkiest. They have great chemistry. The flirty interaction of Allyson and Niven, playing the wise Godfrey, make this version very enjoyable. The original may be great art but the re-make is great fun and entertainment.......
